As part of September’s Hunger Action Month, Anvil partnered with Shell Puget Sound Refinery to participate in a friendly “Granola Bar Challenge” to collect granola bars for Helping Hands Food Bank in Sedro Woolley, WA. Anvil is the proud winner of the challenge, collecting over 7,750 granola bars!
In addition to the challenge, Anvil and Shell employees teamed up for a joint community service activity to pack the granola bars collected into backpacks full of various food items for Helping Hands Food Bank’s “Food for Kids Program.” About 700 of these backpacks are provided weekly to children in the community to ensure they are fully nourished and able to thrive.
A huge THANK YOU to all Anvil and Shell Puget Sound Refinery employees who donated granola bars and especially those who volunteered to fill backpacks.
