Back on June 21, 2018 ten members of the BisonCares team, led by Bison Gear & Engineering CEO John Burch, donated personal time to help the Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) carry out their mission of solving hunger. After a brief orientation of the process, NIFB assigned the task of converting pallets of potatoes into 5 lb. distributable bundles. The team made short work of the mountain of potatoes by sorting, inspecting, packing, measuring, and loading them into a shipping container.
“The BisonCares team along with two other corporate groups successfully packaged 8,200 lbs. of potatoes which will contribute to approximately 7,400 meals for hungry families throughout Northern Illinois,” said Andrew Burnette, director of BisonCares. “The team really enjoyed the event and we look forward to our next community support outing which is planned for August 2018.”
