Giving back, specifically feeding hungry people, is a HUGE part of our mission.
While we may be known mostly for our maintenance-free outdoor furniture and fine craftsmanship, something you might not know about us is our commitment to caring for the community. It is our strong desire to feed hungry people. Through FMSC, Second Harvest Heartland and many other local food collection agencies, we are honored to be a part of making sure the very basic needs of people are met.
In our country, roughly 41 million people struggle with hunger, 13 million of those are children. Hunger Solutions estimates that in Minnesota alone there will be close to 3 million people served by the local food shelf. Hunger in America is a problem of epic proportions and we, as a company, are committed to doing our part to help.
We proudly partner locally with Second Harvest Heartland, Loaves & Fishes, Union Gospel Mission, Families Moving Forward, Meals on Wheels, Jordan Food Shelf & local school backpack organizations. We have a global heart as well. As a company we hold our Christmas Party at Feed My Starving Children each year spending our time packing food bags and filling as many boxes as we can during our two hour shift.
By the Yard values reaching people in our community and beyond. We are committed to continuing this mission as a part of our company growth strategy for many years to come. Helping, serving and sponsoring others with the goal of feeding people will always be at the forefront of our giving philosophy.
