ADNET and Community Collect 575 lbs of Food and $1,500 for People in Need

ADNET Technologies worked with clients, industry partners, local businesses and its team of employees to raise non-perishable product donations and monetary contributions to benefit Southington Bread for Life (“Bread for Life”). The drive began in August 2018 and concluded at ADNET’s Annual Client Appreciation Event on November 8th, where Southington Bread for Life received the donations.

The annual food drive is one of several community initiatives the ADNET team participates in. Throughout this year’s food drive, ADNET and its Chili Cook-Off attendees collected over 575 pounds, or more than 1,000 non-perishable food items and toiletries for Southington Bread for Life, as well as $1,500 dollars in cash donations. At the event, several clients presented financial donations on behalf of their businesses. Additionally, a local grocery store made a generous pledge to begin regularly donating perishable items that are within date to Bread for Life for distribution to its patrons.

“I’m so proud of how the team contributes to this cause that is so important to our community,” said Christopher Luise, Co-CEO of ADNET Technologies. “Our clients, partners and staff truly amaze me with their continued generosity. We know that Southington Bread for Life will put all of the donations they receive to good use to help those in need this season. We’re grateful for the work they do year round to ensure that no one goes hungry.”

Southington Bread for Life is a nonprofit organization that provides meals, social interaction, and a well-stocked food pantry in order to feed thousands of people each year who qualify for supplemental food. The organization gives back to the community through a food pantry, senior meal program and a lunch program consisting of hot, full course meals served at noon, Monday through Friday. The Bread for Life team also provides each person with a bagged, take-home meal containing a sandwich, fruit, dessert and other food staples and offers a mobile donation service, bringing food items to neighborhoods and allowing people to “grocery shop” for the items they need. In 2017, Bread for Life served more than 40,000 meals in all its programs and an additional 1,945 lunches in the children’s summer lunch program.
