In media we often get sent some unusual gifts from publishers - and they are all gratefully received! This morning we received a large box from
. We opened it to find a box of food to be given to a local food drive:
Giving Thanks is our holiday food drive for the advertising industry. We start off the process by mailing several hundred boxes to our clients in markets across the country.
Each box contains a generously-sized bag and a few non-perishable food items to get started. We encourage recipients to fill the bag with appropriate food items and drop it off at a local food bank.
With the help of our newspaper partners, we have compiled a list of food banks in major markets across the country. We encourage recipients who don't find a location on our list to contact Feeding America (formerly Second Harvest) who keep a national database of food banks.
Nice idea. The concept is to encourage donations and the idea of the large bag to fill is clever.
I wish them luck with this promotion, it's a very original idea. Found out more
. There was no name in the box and so we don't know who to thank, and so if you are reading this from Mediaspace then thanks!
