A Port Washington, NY company known for surprising people at their home and offices with balloons, champagne and big checks containing a lot of zeros on them has some special people working for them, too. And according to a Dec. 16 post on the PCH Blog, it isn't the elite prize patrol team that's playing Santa this week.
That role is going to the employees of Publishers Clearing House, who have raided their own pantries and used their own money to help others who are hungry or homeless this time of the year.
The Inn, also known as the Interfaith Nutrition Network, is the organization benefiting from the generosity of the men and women who labor to see that million-dollar prizes get awarded to sweepstakes entrants each year. And the non profit organization is a worthy one, with a motto just as worthy:
...Serving hungry and homeless Long Islanders with dignity, respect and love."
Feeding the hungry and the homeless out of their own pockets rather than the largess of the company they work for says a lot about the PCH employees. But what would one expect from an organization that is known for bringing life-changing happy news and resources to their customers and sweepstakes entrants?
If you live in the Port Washington area and want to contribute donations too, now's the perfect time to drop them off at The Inn. And don't worry about a lack of room there, as they can always find a place for donated food and coats.
