MILFORD — In 2014, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that 17.4 million of U.S. households were food-insecure at some point during that year.
To fight hunger in the communities it serves this holiday season, TCC, the Verizon Premium Wireless Retailer, will be collecting canned and boxed foods from customers and community members to provide to local partnering food banks. The participating store in Milford is located at 102 Milford Landing Drive, Suite 6.
Local families are encouraged to bring in canned and boxed food items from Nov. 1 to Dec. 14. Each store has a goal of donating 50 pounds of food, which will be delivered to local hunger relief organizations nationwide on Tuesday, Dec. 15.
“We are very excited to see the impact this campaign will have on our local food banks and families,” said Scott Moorehead, CEO of TCC. “With 1 in 5 children struggling with hunger, we want to do our part to ensure that as many children as possible do not have to go hungry this holiday season.”
