At Holtkamp Heating & Air, we’re passionate about keeping folks comfortable in their homes. But we’re also just as passionate about helping those in need throughout our community. Our ongoing Gwinnett CAN Challenge campaign encourages individuals and non-profits to help fill local food banks, especially during January-October when food banks receive less attention.
With a goal of raising 15 tons of food in 2015, we recently sponsored two performances of the 3 Little Pigs children’s educational show at Aurora Theatre. 100% of the $3.50 ticket price was collected and donated to local food banks.
Additionally, attendees were encouraged to bring jars of peanut butter to help provide a protein-packed item for the food banks. For every jar they brought, they received one raffle ticket for great prizes.
Thanks to the hundreds of attendees that came out to the performances, we were able to raise:
• $905 in cash based on ticket sales.
• With that $905, 2,715 items can be purchased for local food banks.
• 95 jars of peanut butter.
• Between the cash and donated items, that’s over one ton of food raised in one day!
Many thanks to all who attended the shows and participated in this food drive. It’s amazing what we can accomplish as a community when we come together around important needs.
