Adams and Reese employees donated more than 400 pounds of food to the St. Petersburg Free Clinic to assist in providing Thanksgiving meals to those in need. This food was distributed both directly by the SPFC and through the 62 partner agencies in South Pinellas County to which the SPFC food bank provides in-kind assistance.
The Thanksgiving donation total brings the Adams and Reese St. Petersburg office’s contribution to 1,200 pounds of food this year to the food bank at St. Petersburg Free Clinic.
In October, Adams and Reese participated in the 33rd Annual St. Petersburg Free Clinic’s “Soup’s On” Hunger Awareness Luncheon. Adams and Reese donated a barrel of food to the clinic for the clinic’s food bank, and in doing so, received a blue ribbon of recognition from the organization.
The St. Petersburg Free Clinic Food Bank is the oldest food bank in Pinellas County and distributes 1.3 million pounds of food annually to families and individuals in need. The generosity of Adams and Reese employees helped the SPFC fulfill a major mission in providing temporary food assistance to those in need. The Free Clinic’s programs include the Free Clinic Food Bank, Free Clinic We Help Services, Free Clinic Health Center, Free Clinic Women’s Residence, and Free Clinic Beacon House.
The St. Petersburg Free Clinic Food Bank is a member of the Adams and Reese employee volunteer program, HUGS (Hope, Understanding, Giving, and Support), which was founded in 1988 and has since devoted financial resources and thousands of volunteer hours to offer assistance to those in need. Every year throughout Adams and Reese’s 14 offices in its regional footprint, employees donate time, money and supplies to more than 100 community organizations in need.
