On one of the largest days of giving in the state of Minnesota, the AK team rolled up its sleeves and got to work in the wee hours of the morning.

Several AK team members, working on behalf of our nonprofit Give Back Crew, took part in Second Harvest Heartland’s Pack to the Max extravaganza on Give to the Max Day in Minnesota. Team members arrived at the Brooklyn Park, Minn. facility at 4 a.m. and packed over 8,000 lbs. of food in the two-hour shift.

Second Harvest Heartland’s mission is to end hunger through community partnerships. The organization was formed in 2001 when Second Harvest Greater Minneapolis and Second Harvest St. Paul combined efforts to end hunger. The organization distributes enough food for more than 81 million meals annually to those in need.

As part of Give to the Max Day, all donations to Second Harvest will be matched up to $325,000 by Post Consumer Brands and The Mosaic Company Foundation. For more information, or to donate, click here.

Following the early-morning event at Second Harvest, several team members made their way over to Rush Creek Golf Course to support CROSS Services Peace of Mind benefit breakfast. The Peace of Mind Fund is in place to help families stay in their homes during times of financial crisis.

CROSS offers food, financial, family, and other services to those in need of help in the Northwest Suburban area of Minneapolis. Their Peace of Mind fund is receiving matching funds from First Class Mortgage and the Maple Grove Lions Club. For more information, or to donate, click here.
