Hammond Lumber Donates to Maine Food Bank

AUGUSTA, Maine — Hammond Lumber Company recently donated $1,580 to Good Shepherd Food Bank, which includes proceeds from an annual fundraising event and company-matched dollars.

According to Good Shepherd Food Bank, for every dollar donated, it can provide more than $12.50 worth of food through one of more than 500 local agencies in Maine. Good Shepherd Food Bank has worked for 25 years to establish partnerships with those concerned about ending hunger in Maine. The organization gathers and distributes millions of pounds of food to hunger relief agencies throughout the state. Last year, it distributed more than 9 million pounds of food.

Hammond Lumber Company is a Maine-based family-owned business. It supplies building materials to contractors and homeowners throughout New England. Its features include computer design assistance and free on-site estimating. The company also has a reputation for its public service and contributions to the local and regional communities that it serves.

It's always nice to see a company support the communities it serves. This donation will translate into nearly $20,000 worth of food for food banks serving people in Maine. Talk about a great return on investment!
