Seattle – A month-long food drive by SafeWorks LLC employees to benefit Northwest Harvest delivered not only more than 2,000 pounds of food, but also a record increase from the 2007 drive.
SafeWorks’ 55 participating employees also held a ‘food building’ competition. In a send-up to the company’s business of supplying access equipment and services for work at elevation, contestants were required to use all food collected to erect structures approximating bridges, buildings and even the Space Needle.
"We have so many freedoms and advantages to be thankful for," said Scott Farrell, SafeWorks president and CEO. "With that comes a responsibility to help those less fortunate. Working with efficient organizations like Northwest Harvest is a great way for SafeWorks to show its community involvement."
Northwest Harvest provides food for nearly 300 food banks and meal programs in 36 counties across Washington.
