Sandy Victims Get a Donation from Progresso

One of the most needed donations for those in need from the “Super Storm” has been non-perishable food items, and Progresso Soup has stepped up to help.

The Press of Atlantic City reports that Progresso is stepping up with 9 trailers full of soup from their factory in Vineland.  That will amount to just under 400,000 cans of soup being donated.

The Community Food Bank of New Jersey will be the recipient of the donation, and will distribute more than 42,000 cans to the Egg Harbor Township Food Bank facility.

What got this ball rolling on this donation was Patty Cervini, who works at the Vineland plant and lives in an area hit by Sandy.  She placed a call to Progresso’s corporate headquarters (General Mills – the parent company for Progresso) to try to help those in need.

Lots of people will benefit from this donation, and Progresso will provide a variety of their soups starting at 9am on November 9th.

Remember what Progresso did next time you are food shopping.
