Ferguson Donates More Than 60,000 Meals NEWPORT NEWS, VA — For the sixth straight year, Ferguson associates in over 300 locations across the U.S. participated in the company's Feed the Need campaign, rallying to donate more than 60,000 meals to its neighbors in need. Ferguson reported that more than 15 million households in America are considered food insecure, meaning they do not know where their next meal is going to come from. According to Feeding America, this statistic includes nearly 13 million children. The company's Distribution Center in Richland, WA topped all Ferguson locations with its 14,571 pounds of food and $1,000 in cash donations. In total, Richland associ- ates provided more than 16,000 meals for their community and received an additional $5,000 grant from the company to donate to its partner charity, Tri Cities Foodbank. The company's Shared Purchasing Center and Regional Quotations Center in Nashville, TN donated 7,546 pounds to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and was awarded $5,000 for its community partner, while associates in Lakewood, NJ collected nearly 7,000 pounds of food for The People's Pantry, and Signature Hardware associates amassed 1,954 pounds for Childhood Food Solu- tions. Both locations received additional grants from Ferguson of $2,000 and $1,000, respectively. The campaign aligns with Ferguson's mission to strengthen the communities where its associates live and work. Associates annually participate and support more than 100 different nonprofit organizations across the U.S. The Ferguson showroom in Richmond, VA collected food for the Richmond SPCA as part of Ferguson's annual Feed the Need campaign. 20 Kitchen & Bath Design News • September 2018 INDUSTRY UPDATE NOTEWORTHY DEVELOPMENTS IMPACTING THE KITCHEN AND BATH MARKET YOUR ONE STOP CABINET SHOP | | 1-866-708-7601 Complimentary Design Service • Interactive Dealer Website Showroom Display Incentives ALL CABINETS SHIP IN 7-10 DAYS SEMICUSTOM KITCHEN & BATH CUSTOM CLOSETS • OUTDOOR CABINETRY Circle No. 11 on Product Card Circle No. 12 on Product Card
