Griffin teammates help feed those in need

Griffin teammate volunteers

Teammates from the Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations Plant in Griffin, Georgia, rolled up their sleeves recently to unload a truck with more than 8,000 pounds of food for the local Five Loaves & Two Fish Food Pantry. The food will help feed those in need throughout the city of Griffin.

The Five Loaves & Two Fish Food Pantry serves a city of 23,000 residents and is the fourth largest food pantry across the state. The pantry distributes groceries to 1,500 households every month, which adds up to more than 20,000 bags of groceries each year.

Teammates enjoyed the experience so much that they plan to continue volunteering each month to help feed those in need.
