AMAG Technology proudly donated 118 bags of food to Torrance, California’s Food for Kids Program, a community program that delivers non-perishable food to Title One elementary school children. The food is delivered to local schools and distributed to students each Friday. The food is to be consumed over the weekend.
AMAG employees purchased food and prepared the bags on Thursday, January 15. Each bag is meant to feed a family of four and was filled with 10 items of non-perishable food for the weekend. The bags were delivered by staff to The Volunteer Center where Vice President, Operations, William A. Welch graciously greeted staff and thanked everyone for their contributions.
Welch said, “We are so thankful to AMAG Technology for their generous donation of bags and money to Food for Kids. The bags will be delivered this Friday to local elementary children and you will have made a difference in their lives this very weekend!”
“AMAG is proud to support such a great cause that makes an immediate difference in children’s lives,” said AMAG Technology, President, Matt Barnette.
A monetary donation was also made.
