Continuing to Step Up to the Plate for Coachella Valley

altum_find_food_bank_signFor the past year, The Altum Group has carried out a year-round program of collecting food for the needy in the Coachella Valley. For many people in the Coachella Valley, hunger is a 365-day-a–year problem that affects the homeless, seniors, impoverished and working-poor families, and children. We have been successful at collecting canned goods and non-perishables to donate to the Find Food Bank – the single largest distributor to hungry persons and families in our community. The Find Food Bank provides food to persons who suffer from hunger and malnutrition. They provide this service directly through their organization as well as their partner agencies who provide food to over 80,000 people in the Coachella Valley.

As a Coachella-based firm, our managers and staff care deeply about our community and are committed to doing our part to help solve hunger in our region. These values are part of our brand promise to #caredeeply and #StriveHigher in our professional and personal lives.

Altum Group Attacks Hunger with the FIND Food Bank

The Altum Group has embarked on a new community service activity in partnership with the Find Food Bank of the Coachella Valley. The Find Food Bank provides food to persons who suffer from hunger and malnutrition. They provide this service directly through their organization as well as their partner agencies who provide food to over 80,000 people in the Coachella Valley.

Hunger is not something that exists in some far off place, it happens right here in our community. In California, 1 of 6 children go to bed hungry every night and often go to school hungry which prevents them from learning and achieving their full potential. Many Senior Citizens face hunger and they often need to make hard choices such as paying rent or medical costs instead of food. In the Coachella Valley we are so blessed to have so much and it is heartbreaking that we have such a high degree of hunger in our community. In response, Altum Group employees have started a regular collection of non-perishables for the Find Food Bank. Non-Perishables include canned goods, pasta, peanut butter, tuna fish, cereal, breakfast bars, rice, beans, lentils, and baby food. Employees have set a goal to donate items each week for delivery to the Find Food Bank.
