Here at Weather Master, every year we conduct a food drive for local food banks in the Knightdale area. Our goal is to donate as much food as possible with the help of our staff and our customers.
In fact, this year we offered discounts off our services in return for food donations from our customers! From cereal, to peanut butter, to pasta, to boxed meals, to toiletries, every donation helped a family in need.
“It’s a great way to give back to the community. Not only are we providing great service to our customers, but we can use that same opportunity to serve our community as well,” said our co-owner Lee Hill.
We received 4,577 POUNDS of food total! We are positively overjoyed and overwhelmed by the incredible amounts of food we received. Just to give you an idea, last Thanksgiving we had set ourselves a challenge to fill up 4 boxes, in order to get Lee to wear the holiday suit & tie pictured below:
We ended up receiving a whopping 931 pounds, and 776 meals, to donate to the food bank last year. So, this year, 4,577 pounds — over 2 TONS of food for our Knightdale neighbors — is absolutely fantastic. And in every year to come, we hope to donate more and more! No one should be facing hunger during Thanksgiving, or any other time.
You can still make a donation to the food bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. They have been around for 42 years now — that’s just one year less than Weather Master! The food bank has donated food to 34 counties in North Carolina as an affiliate of Feeding America, the leading food charity in the United States. They truly love their community, just like we do here at Weather Master.
Thank you again for all of your donations. From our family here at Weather Master to yours, have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
