On Valentine’s Day, while many were spending time with loved ones, staff members from SŌLitude Lake Management were spending time doing what they love – helping others! The SŌLitude folks spent their afternoon volunteering with the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula where they assisted in the “Backpack Program”, a program offered in twenty Title 1 elementary schools weekly. Volunteers in this program fill “backpacks” with donated nutritional items that children take home so that they have food for the weekend. In the afternoon, SŌLitude staff members were able to stuff hundreds of “backpacks” and make it possible for the Foodbank to meet their delivery schedule for the coming week. Since the Foodbank started in 1986, they have been able to distribute over 92,417,674 pounds of food to neighbors in Newport News, Hampton, Gloucester, Mathews, Williamsburg, Poquoson, Surry, James City County and York County.
SŌLitude Lake Management looks forward to a continued partnership with the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula and they look forward to the next scheduled volunteer date. Not only does the staff get a great feeling from knowing they are helping others, but it is great fun too!
When not volunteering, the staff at SŌLitude Lake Management helps to make the firm an industry leader in lake and pond management, fisheries management and related services.
“The Foodbank is a charitable organization that solicits, receives, inventories, stores, and distributes purchased and donated food and grocery products to charitable agencies that directly help the needy.” (www.nnfoodbank.org)
