( ENSPIRE Community Spotlight ) TBC Associates Lends Food Aid for South Florida Food Shortage
ENSPIRE Contributor: Anastasia Hanna
After discovering that Feeding South Florida, the largest food bank in South Florida, is on the brink of a food crisis as its federal coronavirus aid evaporates at the end of December, TBC Company (TBC), one of the largest automotive replacement tire marketers in North America, had declared that it will help combat hunger this holiday season and spread the spirit of #TBCDrivenToGive by providing the agency with high-demand goods for families in the community.
TBC Associates are donating food products, including peanut butter, cereal, rice, beans, pasta, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meals, and household essentials. Associates are also able to make monetary donations where, for every dollar donated, nine-holiday meals are provided.
Since April 2020, TBC has supported Feeding South Florida and the needs of Palm Beach County with a donation of a 24,000-square-foot facility in Pembroke Park, which has been used as an overflow location for dry food. TBC will continue its facility donation along with providing financial aid to jumpstart its food drive.
In November, in recognition of Giving Tuesday, TBC Associates had the opportunity to vote for their top three charities, and the company made a donation to the three organizations with the most votes—Ronald McDonald Charities, Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County, and Place of Hope.
As in previous holiday seasons, Associates have put on their “angel wings” to donate to the Salvation Army Angel Tree campaign of TBC. The initiative offers needy children in the local area with Christmas presents. Associates are now involved in voluntary programs for meal delivery.
