199 pairs of shoes donated to Good in the Hood!

shoesPinnacle Services is partnering with Good in the Hood and Shoe Away Hunger to help provide food and school supplies to under-privileged families and homeless youth.  We have seen generous donations from all the teams within Pinnacle Services, from program to nursing to case management.

This is a rewarding cause, and it’s clear that working together to collect as many pairs of gently worn shoes as possible will have a big impact on the people who need them.  The shoes that are donated will go to Shoe Away Hunger, where they will be sold for $2.50 a pair.  The money collected during shoe sales will then be used to buy groceries from local food shelves, where a whole week’s worth of groceries can be provided.

In addition, Pinnacle Services is working with Good in the Hood to secure generous donations of book bags that will be filled with personal hygiene items and school supplies.  These book bags will be given to homeless youth in our area.

Our hope is to donate more than 100 pairs of shoes and book bags.  We are well on our way to reaching that goal!  Our HR department has been keeping track of the donations, ensuring we are on track, sending out positive reminders when the donations slow down, and keeping our donation bins tidy and organized.  We truly appreciate their help, as well as all of the donations made by our generous and community-minded employees. Thank you, and keep up the great work!

UPDATE 8/4/16:  The numbers are in and our Pinnacle team donated 199 pairs of shoes to Good in the Hood!  That’s almost 4 years of meals for families in need!
