ALTON – Simmons Hanly Conroy employees collected 27,378 pounds of food during its 11th Annual Simmons Employee Foundation Food Drive and donated it for the holidays to five area food pantries.
“We strongly believe in supporting the communities we call home,” said John Simmons, Simmons Hanly Conroy chairman. “The SEF food drive is just one of the many ways our employees are able to make a difference in people’s lives beyond the courtroom. We hope our neighbors in need and their families are able to eat well this holiday season.”
From Oct. 6 to Nov. 17, employees paid to participate in several interoffice activities – including raffles, Fan Day Fridays, and a Halloween costume contest – to help raise the money needed to purchase food, which amounted to a little more than 5,000 pounds per pantry.
