On Veterans Day we honor all who answered the call to service. Soldiers and Sailors, young and old, all of whom fought for home. Brave and bold, some have lived, while others have died, ALL of them deserve our pride. We’re proud of all military members, present and past, who kept thinking of red, white and blue. They fought for us and our rights, they fought through many days and nights and though we may not know each name, we THANK ALL VETERANS just the same.
So, let us show our pride and thankfulness by wearing something that represents your favorite branch of service or if you don’t have a favorite, wear a green shirt to show ALL our Raven Veterans that we care about what they do or did, to keep our country free.
For our driving force, we have placed $25.00 on the card of every veteran to show our appreciation. When you speak to these veterans, please be sure to thank them for their service. Let us not forget the sacrifice that the families of these brave souls endure and be sure to thank them as well.
Raven Transport partnered with area companies, organizations and schools to battle hunger in the community. We came together as ONE to package over 900,000 nutritious meals for children and families in need. This year’s goal is to pack one million meals for distribution to local food pantries, mission homes and backpack programs throughout the First Coast. We have packaged 2,480,204 meals to date.
Members of our Raven Charity Committee joined hundreds of volunteers Saturday morning, November 5th. They cupped, stuffed, sifted, measured, sacked, sealed, packaged and taped to reach our individual table goal ~ 25 boxes of 28 packages. A total of 4,200 meals to hungry and grateful families. Raven is proud to be serving the community.
Hello Raven Team!
We are partnering with Farm Share to collect food and monetary donations for our annual food drive. Last year we were proud to have raised $600 through generous payroll donations. A $5 donation will provide 35 meals for those that may not otherwise have a Thanksgiving meal. We make it easy for you to help by using payroll deductions. With your help we hope to meet or exceed last year’s contributions. There are 3 barrels located in the lobby. We will be collecting items through November 18th. Thank you in advance for your support in giving back to our community.
Here’s a list of suggested items to donate:
-Meals in a Can
-Non-Fat Dry Milk
-Macaroni and Cheese
-Canned Meat or Poultry
