Over the course of two weeks, more than 40 LRS team members collected non-perishable food goods to benefit the Desert Mission Food Bank.
These items help to replenish the shelves for those in need. Several hundred people per week visit Desert Mission and a large percentage are on food assistance programs or facing homelessness.
The Desert Mission Food Bank organization offers several free and reduced-cost food programs, nutrition education and resource and referral services. Whether using the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program/food stamp benefits to buy food or receiving a free federal emergency food box, countless clients rely on the food bank.
After the event, LRS celebrated together with a luau potluck! Kudos for setting such an amazing example of how giving back and team building are the perfect combination.
