Stirling Properties just completed a 2-week collection drive for The Covington Food Bank, whose supplies have been considerably depleted over the course of the summer. Since the food bank is in desperate need of food and personal hygiene products, the Stirling Stewardship Committee organized the drive to give employees and agents at Stirling’s Corporate Headquarters in Covington the opportunity to donate toward this worthy cause. Thanks to the generosity of everyone who donated items, the Covington Food Bank now has over 700 more items to help those in need. When the items were dropped off, they totaled 704 pounds (yes, pounds)!
A special thank you to Tracy Gandy for her efforts in organizing the drive, and to Dawn Plaisance, Monica Milazzo, Jessica Zeringue and Mark Dugan who donated the most items!
