  • Louisville Champions Fundraising Effort to Benefit Local Food Pantry

    During the recent Battle of the Branches, MH vs. Hunger,  the team in Louisville took a different approach to make the most of their donations.  Donna Petty, Service Coordinator, championed a fundraising effort for Dare to Care Food Bank.  Because of their purchasing power, Dare to Care was able to turn every quarter donated into a dollars worth of food!

    In addition to providing food to hundreds of emergency kitchens, shelters and food pantries, Dare to Care operates several programs targeting the most vulnerable in the community.  Last year Dare to Care distributed food for 13 million meals to those in need in the 13 county Kentuckiana service area.

    In addition to the 200 food  items donated, the Louisville branch also contributed $810.00 dollars, or $3240.00 “Dare to Care dollars”.

    Joe Bradley, Construction Rental Manager said “We really feel we got more bang for the buck that way!  Under the tremendous leadership of the amazing Ms. Petty, we feel that indeed we pulled together to support a very worthy cause and made a difference.”

    Great job, Louisville!

     

  • MH Equipment vs. Hunger 2013

    Lexington, KY – May 15, 2013:  MH Equipment held their 3rd annual “Battle of the Branches” to benefit local food pantries during the month of April.  All 26 MH Equipment branches participated in collecting over 15,000 food items for food pantries in their communities. John Wieland, CEO said “Not everyone has enough food to put on their table. We feel blessed and honored that we are able to give back to our community food banks.”

    The Lexington branch claimed their second Battle of the Branches competition in three years by collecting 2,434 items (152 items per employee) and earned the rights to another year with the Battle of the Branches traveling trophy!   More importantly, they will receive a $500.00 donation from the His First Foundation to their community food bank of choice, God’s Pantry Food Bank, which serves 50 counties in Central and Eastern Kentucky. http://www.godspantry.org/

    Wieland adds, “A carpenter once said ‘it is more blessed to give than receive’. This is true and I am humbled by the giving nature of MH Equipment’s employees and thank them for their contributions. Congratulations to Lexington on their Battle of the Branches win!”

    “His First Foundation” will come alongside people in need that are suffering because of circumstances completely out of their control.
