About 250 Western Sussex County families will enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving meal, thanks to the hard work and generosity of the Trinity Logistics team in Seaford.
On Saturday morning, qualifying recipients received a 15-pound box of holiday side dishes, a frozen Perdue roaster (donated by Perdue!) and a bunch of fresh bananas distributed by a small team of volunteers.
Preparation for this sunny Saturday food distribution actually started last Wednesday evening when volunteers packed boxes of shelf-stable foods, such as stuffing mix and cranberry sauce, provided through Trinity’s partnership with the Food Bank of Delaware. Packing took place right on site at Trinity Logistics in Seaford.
Jennifer Wright, a credit officer, and one of the project’s organizers, said Saturday’s event was the third year the freight brokerage firm’s non-profit arm, Trinity Foundation, has worked hand-in-hand with the Food Bank to accomplish the community outreach program.
According to the firm’s web site, the Foundation was founded in 2005 by Trinity Logistics team members to organize efforts to give back to the community; it is now recognized as a 501 (c) 3, non-profit organization.
Battling hunger is one of the Foundation’s three focus areas.
“We are thankful for partners like Trinity,” said Chad Robinson, director at the Food Bank’s Milford branch.
“When we work together we can accomplish so much more,” he said. Thanks to Trinity’s generosity, area families will be able to gather around their Thanksgiving tables with plates filled with turkey and all of the trimmings.”
