A $5,000 check was presented to the Preston Community Food Bank by officials from Pepperidge Farm’s Richmond plant on Wednesday and the monies will help pay for a compressor in a walk-in freezer.
The check was presented by Pepperidge Farm human resource supervisor Sharel Cundick to Steve Aust, a treasurer of the local, non-profit organization.
Aust thanked Cundick, Pepperidge Farm and its parent company, Campbell Soup, for the donation. He said it came unexpectedly and at just the right time to help pay for the compressor.
“We have the shell of the walk-in freezer installed. But at this point it’s lacking the compressor. The estimated cost for that is $6,000. This donation by Pepperidge Farm will go a long way in helping us get the freezer functional,” said Aust. “We’re just very pleased with this and all the other help we’ve had over the past six months to build our new facility.”
Megan Green, human resource associate with Pepperidge’s Richmond facility, said each year Pepperidge Farm and Campbell Soup encourage their employees to be aware of and improve their health and wellness.
