Pelion, S.C.-based WP Rawl is giving back to local communities through support of the Rockin’ Appalachian Mom Project (RAMP), a nonprofit that fights poverty in the Appalachian region of the U.S. through nutrition. This marks the third consecutive year Rawl has supported RAMP.
Rawl recently donated 465 individual gift boxes of fresh greens, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and coupons for Nature’s Greens, Versatile Veggies and Paula Deen products to the Homecoming Food Pantry in Inez, Ky., and to some of the neediest school children in the community as identified through RAMP’s Backpack Snack Program. The donation was made in honor of all of Rawl’s customers as a thank you for their loyal support, according to a news release.
“Our family always tries to give back to the communities we are a part of,” said Ashley Rawl, director of sales and marketing for the company. We are fortunate that our business is growing healthy foods and are able to share them with young children who need them to grow strong. RAMP is a great way for us to help make a difference during the holiday season.”
RAMP is appreciative of Rawl’s donation.
“We are so grateful to WP Rawl for their continued support,” said Amy Guerrieri, founder of RAMP. “Their donations truly bring the warmth of the holiday season home to so many families in Martin County. We couldn’t do the work that we do without the help of companies like WP Rawl, and these boxes of food will go far in helping these families have a much happier and healthier holiday season.”
