International Shoppes has partnered with Island Harvest Food Bank, an organization on Long Island in New York that provides assistance to those struggling with poverty, food insecurity and beyond.
As a company that has been part of the New York business fabric for over 70 years, IS’ Co-CEOs Scott Halpern and Matt Greenbaum tell TMI that they are grateful for the opportunity to give back to their community and help those in need.
“By engaging in advocacy, root cause investigation and action, providing nutrition training and education and building a Workforce Skills Development Institute they have found innovative ways to tackle complicated issues that impact our neighbors in need,” they said.
“Our new partnership with Island Harvest Food Bank will allow us to make an even greater impact in the lives of our fellow community members. We are excited to work together with Island Harvest Food Bank on a variety of initiatives, including fundraising, team events to build food boxes, and helping people who are looking for employment in the area.”
The International Shoppes executives tell TMI that they believe it is their responsibility to give back to the communities in which they operate.
“We are committed to making a difference and are grateful to partner with such an amazing organization like Island Harvest Food Bank that is in our backyard.”
