Children's Holiday Food Drive

I wanted to quickly fill you in on something very special we’re doing over the next month.

PrimeSpine is partnering with Alabama Childhood Food Solutions this holiday season and we’ll be conducting our first-ever Food Drive in our office. There are over 24,000 children in Central Alabama who live below the poverty line, and most nights they go to bed hungry. ACFS is a local charity serving children in five of these counties. Proper nutrition is essential to give these kids their chance to learn and thrive.

Starting Monday (11/21), we will have a drop off table in our office to accept any non-perishable food items. The ACFS preferred food list is below. I want this to be a huge success for these children, and my goal is to donate 500 items to ACFS on 12/21/16. I would love it if you would help be a part of this.

To make things interesting… I will be giving away a Masterbuilt Indoor Turkey Fryer on 12/21/16 to one lucky donor. If you haven’t seen or heard about them, these things are incredible and they do so much more than cook turkeys!

So, for every FIVE food items you bring in, you will get one ticket put into the drawing and there’s no limit to how many items you can donate (Ex: 20 items gets you 4 tickets).
