Every year SVA gives back to the community in a variety of ways. This year, through sponsorship and volunteerism, SVA supported Hunger Task Force with their Thanksgiving Drive-Thru Food Drive. On November 19, 2021 at American Family Field in Milwaukee, the food drive allowed the public to donate food to Hunger Task Force, in-person, just in time for Thanksgiving.
In these times, more and more people are facing financial hardships and food insecurity. In Milwaukee County, more than 21,000 people visit local food pantries each month. No family should go hungry and that is the goal this annual food drive strives to accomplish. At the conclusion of the food drive, Hunger Task Force reported a grand total of 587 turkeys and 52,000 lbs. of food donated for families this holiday season.
“Giving back to our community has always been and always will be important for SVA and our employees. Each year we support a number of local organizations and we are happy to support Hunger Task Force,” states Matt Vanderloo, CEO of SVA. “Helping provide nutritious meals is always important for families in need. We appreciate all that Hunger Task Force does to help our community and being a partner with them is truly rewarding for us.”
