SPECIAL DELIVERY FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Blount Gives... Let us count the ways!
Giving back is an important element of life at Blount Fine Foods. Here are a few ways we thank our community for the support we have enjoyed for more than 125 years:
- Feeding the Hungry – we regularly provide our delicious, nourishing food to several nonprofit agencies across the Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island area some that we donate to regularly are We Share Hope, Vets’ Food Pantry, Reaching The Fringe, Providence Rescue Mission, Ronald McDonald House Charities, South Shore Community Action Council, and the Fall River Soup Kitchen.
- Fundraising – We provide soups for nonprofit organization's to serve or sell at their own fundraising events. These events range from 5K road races to church clambakes to major events as large as the annual Boys and Girls Club Gala.
- Food Banks – In addition to supporting local soup kitchens and food pantries, several times throughout the year we provide major relief to the major regional food banks, including the Greater Boston Food Bank and Rhode Island Community Food Bank, by backing our trucks up to their doors and donating hundreds of cases of soups and sides to help feed individuals and families in need.
- Soul-Warming Soups – Blount has partnered with local organization that helps schools youth groups and churches raise the needed funds through offering “Healthier Food/Soup Bag” fundraisers. Interested groups can learn more at www.soulwarmingsoups.com or by calling us at (888) 750-7013.
Should you have interest in receiving a product donation, please request it at least six weeks in advance. You can find the donation request form on our website under “Donations” at www.BlountFineFoods.com.
And with the holidays just around the corner (Christmas is only eight weeks from this Friday!), we would be remiss if we didn’t mention Bob’s Big Give, which was a holiday giving project started ten years ago within the walls of Blount Fine Foods by Bob Sewall, our EVP of Sales & Marketing. While still near and dear to everyone here at the company, today Bob’s Big Give has grown to be a standalone 501 (c)(3) tax-deductible public charity that provides support to families in need around the holidays and throughout the year – from holiday dinners to presents for the kids, and from warm jackets, hats and gloves to relief with utility bills during the long, cold, dark winter.
Giving back to our community is an essential part of the foundation on which Blount Fine Foods is built. We hope you are inspired to give back in your community.
