Volunteering Time and Talent to End Hunger in Eastern Massachusetts
Greater Boston Food Bank / Warehouse Sorting
DATE: Monday, September 10, 2018
LOCATION: 70 South Bay Avenue, Boston, MA
Floyd Advisory associates in Boston joined other volunteers to support the mission of the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) and package over 10,000 pounds of food which will provide 9,168 meals to food-insecure individuals and families throughout eastern Massachusetts.
The food packed by our volunteers at the GBFB will go towards providing supplemental groceries to seniors and children every month helping ensure they don’t miss meals and receive the nutritious food they need to stay healthy. Food Pantries will participate in distribution through providing groceries on an emergency or occasional basis to those in need. Community Meal Programs cook and serve regularly scheduled meals to walk-in guests. The GBFB partners with 550 hunger-relief agencies like these and other food assistance providers scattered throughout eastern Massachusetts serving nine counties and 190 towns and cities in eastern Massachusetts from Lowell to Cape Cod. GBFB works to acquire, store, organize and distribute food through these local food pantries and community meal programs, as well as homeless and residential shelters, youth programs, senior centers, and day-care centers embedded in communities throughout the nine counties of eastern Massachusetts.
Floyd Advisory volunteers work together as a team on an assembly line to load boxes onto conveyer belts, inspect, sort, and pack donated grocery products and label boxes that are then distributed to hunger relief agencies. More than 25,000 volunteers collectively contribute more than 65,000 hours of time annually. With this many volunteers, and with donations and in-kind support, GBFB is leading the fight to end hunger in Eastern Massachusetts. GBFB is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. Last year, GFGB distributed more than 54 million pounds of food out of its 117,000 square foot, state-of-the-art food distribution facility, enough to provide healthy meals to over 500,000 people. But despite these efforts, one in nine residents in our communities do not know where their next meal will come from. GBFB is committed to providing at least one meal a day for every person in need in eastern Massachusetts. Floyd Advisory proudly supports the Greater Boston Food Bank.
Team for Cures to Fight Blood Cancer
Events: Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation / 5K Walk/Run
Date: Sunday, April 30, 2017
Location: Carson Beach, South Boston, MA
Floyd Advisory associates joined thousands of runners, participants, and volunteers on a beautiful sunny Sunday morning in the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run at Carson Beach in South Boston. The annual event is organized to increase awareness and raise funds to accelerate finding a cure for multiple myeloma, which is the second most common blood cancer and is incurable. $690,690 was raised at this year’s event! Ninety percent of donors’ investments through the MMRF go directly towards research and related programming. Funds raised through the MMRF’s efforts have helped to nearly triple patient survival. This past year, with the MMRF leading the way, six new treatment therapies were approved by the FDA for multiple myeloma. This is phenomenal! The MMRF brings treatments to trial sixty percent faster than the industry standard providing a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families.
The mission of the MMRF is to relentlessly pursue innovative means that accelerate the development of next-generation multiple myeloma treatments to extend the lives of patients and lead to a cure. Visit the MMRF at www.themmrf.org.
