SMITH+GARDNER GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
On October 19th, Smith Gardner, Inc. participated in our first Creative Food Drive which supports the Food Bank for Central and Eastern North Carolina and Housing for New Hope. During this event a total of 13,366 pounds of food was used in the sculptures, and from this 11,256 meals can be provided to our community. The Creative part of the food drive is that each team must build something with the food that is donated.
Our construction included the Bodie Island Lighthouse, Jockey’s Ridge, the ocean, a boat and the Wright Flyer zooming past the lighthouse! Under the leadership of Madeline German, P.G., our team raised almost 1000 food items. We had several practice sessions to refine our building technique since the time limit for building was 90 minutes. For our effort we won the People’s Choice Award!
