THANKS and GIVING
Thanksgiving is not just about the to die for mashed potatoes and gravy made by your favorite Aunt, the beautiful turkey on the table or the pumpkin pie in the oven – it’s much bigger than that.
The name of the holiday is what it is supposed to be about. THANKS and GIVING. The act that should be done everywhere – everyday – by everyone.
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
This year, EPE USA wanted to put the Giving back into Thanksgiving because we believe that making a contribution to the greater good – regardless of how – is the most important part of this special holiday.
To that point, EPE USA is thrilled to sponsoring a Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive to support each of the communities located across the nation.
The goal was simple: to collect and assemble as many non-perishable food items as possible for each EPE USA location to then donate to local charities for distribution to those in need. Each site manager selects a local charity to donate and deliver the canned food goods to – EPE USA has also added an extra incentive to collect donated food goods by rewarding the EPE site with the most donated food goods an additional cash value amount to be then donated to their specific community.
With our efforts in collectively donating canned foods, EPE USA takes part in making a difference in our communities by giving and helping those who are less fortunate on this day of giving thanks.
EPE USA is so excited to be a part of something greater than we are, and we hope we inspire you to do the same!
