Savannah, GA (February 26, 2018) – Comcast announced today it will present a check for $75,000 to America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia. The presentation will take place at their facility, located at 2501 E. President Street in Savannah, on Feb. 28 at 10 a.m.
Established in 1981, America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia is a locally inspired, volunteer-driven nonprofit food bank and community partnering organization. Second Harvest provides food to tens of thousands of children, senior citizens, low-income families, and people with disabilities who are at risk for hunger throughout communities in southern Georgia.
Their programs include Brown Bag for the Elderly, Grace’s Kitchen, Kids Cafe, Mobile Food Pantry, and Partner Distribution. These efforts provide hunger support to those most in need. The organization partners with 285 faith-based and non-profit agencies to provide emergency food assistance across Coastal Georgia communities.
“For decades, America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia has made a true difference in the lives of those who so greatly depend on them for hunger relief,” said Doug Guthrie, Regional SVP at Comcast. “We recognize that Hurricane Irma put a heavy toll on their resources; this grant helps them rebuild capacity to support their mission today and in the future.”
