The Garabedian Group collected food and monetary donations for the second year in a row during the months of May and June in an effort to raise funds for the Community Food Bank.
To mark the closing of the Group’s 2012 Summer Food Drive, the Community Food Bank’s Mobile Pantry Truck will be stationed on the northwest corner of Palm and Alluvial in Fresno from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 28 to collect all final donations at a public celebratory event.
“We at The Garabedian Group feel we are very fortunate to be a part of a growing and thriving firm here in Fresno, said Dale Garabedian, founder and managing partner of The Garabedian Group, in a release. “The team decided to give back and support the Community Food Bank during this time of the year not only to help out those less fortunate than us but because this is the time of year when donations are at a low.”
After surpassing a $50,000 goal last year with $61,682 in donations, The Garabedian Group’s 2012 goal is to raise $65,000 in food and monetary donations by the end of its food drive. They are currently at 92 percent of their goal and will be accepting donations until June 28.
