“In an effort to feed 58,000 people each week, the San Antonio Food Bank and our 530 partner agencies rely heavily on donations that help us function in a professional and efficient manner,” said Eric S. Cooper, president and CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank, one of several non-profit agencies benefiting from Frost’s donation. “This donation of furniture and other goods helps us to do just that, and for that we are grateful!”
The 569 items donated to the food bank and its partners include high-quality desks, seating, shelving, whiteboards and more. As part of its ongoing goal of acting responsibly to its community neighbors and the neighboring environment, Frost Bank chose to keep their office goods out of the dump and instead in use by local non-profit partners.
“We are committed to the overall well-being of the communities we work in,” said Mark Harrison, senior vice president of internal support administration at Frost. “To maintain our high-level of customer service, our employees moved directly into furnished spaces at One Frost without missing a beat. This was an opportunity to maintain our service levels, minimize unnecessary waste and give back to the community.”
