GLEANERS FOOD BANK
“One Million Meals” campaign benefiting, Gleaners Food Bank
To help the increasing number of Hoosiers in need of food assistance, Goelzer Investment Management is proud to announce its new initiative to donate one million meals by 2026 to Gleaners Food Bank. In continuing the firm’s long legacy of giving back to the community, Goelzer has committed to donating 70,000 meals each year to reach its goal of providing one million meals to central Indiana communities.
The meal program began in 2006 when Goelzer Investment Management held its annual tailgate, to support the Colts’ “Sacking Hunger” food drive. Since then Goelzer has donated 350,000 NK Hurst meals to Gleaners. This year Goelzer plans to double the number of meals it donates and contribute 70,000 meals for central Indiana residents who need the support.
The donation event will take place on Monday November 21, 2016 at NK Hurst Bean Field at 11:00 a.m. NK Hurst is located at 230 W. McCarty Street, directly across from Lucas Oil Stadium. Representatives from Gleaners, Goelzer, and NK Hurst will take part in the festivities.
