Safelite Donates Record Amount to Local Food Bank

Safelite AutoGlass recently donated nearly 5,000 items of food to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank during its annual Operation FEED campaign. According to company officials, this was the company's biggest donation in its 14 years of involvement with the program.

Safelite held an internal competition between the five floors of its corporate headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, to see which floor could provide the most items of food by donating funds, buying food directly or by purchasing as much as they could with donated funds.

"Our associates were excited to be involved with this project and the response we saw was wonderful," says Nancy Hucle, Operation FEED coordinator for Safelite. "We had wonderful support from the community as well. Enterprise Rent-A-Car donated a large truck overnight for us to transport all of the food to the food bank while a few local grocery stores got behind our effort by donating several pallets of food."

Hucle has been coordinator for Operation FEED since Safelite began participating in the annual event 14 years ago. The Safelite team donated a total of 4,792 pounds of food during this year's Operation FEED, held March 11-June 30.
