Planting Seeds for Others

May 29, 2014

Last week, a group from Reliance One spent a day at Forgotten Harvest of Southeast Detroit. Kevin, Sean, Ramzy, and Andrew arrived at the farm early Wednesday morning and began by fixing the tarps that covered the seed beds which stretched across the 300 yard field. After they finished this task, they planted long rows of squash and zucchini. “It was some of the hardest physical work I have done in a long time, but I’m so thankful my company allows us the opportunity to give back in the community,” said Sean Hill, Senior Technical Recruiter.

To end their day, they made sure the plant beds were fixed accordingly, the tarps were secure, and the field was cleaned up. “I never really knew how much Forgotten Harvest impacted families. We learned that they saved over 1 million pounds of food last year which otherwise would have gone to waste, and their goal for this year is 1.7 million pounds,” said Kevin Gay, Senior Account Executive. “It was such an eye opening and humbling experience, and I’m so thankful I was able to donate my time to such a great organization.”
