USP Employees donate over 500 pounds of food items for needy families

Canonsburg, PA – During the month of November, the 57 employees at Utility Service Partners, Inc. (USP), headquartered in Canonsburg, PA, opened their hearts and pantry doors to donate over 700 individual items totaling more than 500 pounds and valued at over $800 to the Greater Washington County Food Bank Thanksgiving drive.

Items ranging from snacks and desserts to cereals, boxed meals and beverages flooded the Canonsburg office filling box after box. Every department participated with the Call Center leading the pack donating over 500 items alone.

“Thanks to the generosity of our employees, numerous local families will feel a little more blessed this Thanksgiving,” said Philip E. Riley, Jr., Chief Executive Officer for USP. “We are thankful to have the opportunity to donate to such a worthwhile cause in our local community.”

In addition to the food drive, employees also contributed more than $120 to the 2000 Turkeys Drive, which will provide another 12 families of four in the area with a full Thanksgiving Dinner. Originally created in 1983 as a seasonal food drive for the unemployed but has since grown into a tradition for families, schools and businesses as a way to provide holiday meals for residents unable to meet the eligibility requirements established by the Greater Washington County Food Bank. In 2011, the fund provided meals to over 4,000 households which served over 20,000 individuals.
