For several years, Holtkamp HVAC has sponsored the Taste of Home Cooking School at Gwinnett Center. With hundreds of local residents coming together to celebrate cooking techniques and new recipes, its the perfect event to raise awareness about the serious issue of hunger in our community.
We created the Gwinnett Can Challenge as a way to highlight that local food banks and the families they feed need our help 365 days a year. Our Can Challenge team recently attended this year’s show armed with smiling faces and ready to start accepting donations as soon as the doors opened!
Chopper, the mascot of the Gwinnett Braves, stopped by to show his support! He knows this cause is truly a home run.
Throughout the evening, Suzanne Holtkamp had a chance to talk to the attendees and encourage them to purchase raffle tickets for $1 each that would go directly to support local food banks. For every ticket they purchased or food item they donated, they would receive an entry for an iPad!
Pastor Bill from the Bread of Life Food Pantry was so impressed with the bountiful contributions that he just had to pose for a picture.
Congratulations to Cindy Jones, winner of the iPad. Her raffle donations and all the others will provide a tremendous amount of food for local food banks.
By the end of the night, we had collected almost 1 ton of food! Many thanks to all that brought food donations and purchased raffle tickets.
Donations like these truly make a difference in the lives of others. Want to know how you can get involved and help fill local food banks in Gwinnett? Learn more about the Gwinnett Can Challenge.
