Food Lifeline is honored to recognize not one, but two Corporate Donors of the Month this February, Sellen and Milliman! On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day we were lucky to welcome teams from both partners for a day of service in our warehouse. In just one day, 92 volunteers and our production team sorted over 19,000 pounds of fresh produce and pantry staples!
While both Sellen and Milliman have volunteered with us before, being in the warehouse on MLK Day was especially meaningful for both teams. Sellen Construction CEO Scott Redman shared his team’s excitement to be joining us.
“Sellen is proud to close its main office and jobsites on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to honor his vital racial justice work and continue his legacy through a day of service and volunteerism in our communities. Food Lifeline’s commitment to ending food insecurity is critically important to so many people in our region. Our team was grateful to have the opportunity to support such an essential cause.”
Milliman Principal & Consulting Actuary Jenny Gerstorff also expressed gratitude to be able to serve on the holiday.
“Volunteering is important to me because it helps my family to engage with the community in a meaningful way. My five kids currently range in age from 10 to 21, and we appreciate that Food Lifeline provides an opportunity for us to volunteer together in a way that helps promote social responsibility as a core value within the next generation. We volunteer on MLK Day in honor of Dr. King’s legacy, and to support working towards a more equitable community for all.”
We are extremely grateful to recognize and partner with companies that deeply believe in service. On behalf of our community and staff, we would like to thank Milliman and Sellen for their outstanding gift of time and commitment to our mission.
