Visalia Emergency Aid Council (VEAC) received a $10,000 donation from Humana, a leading health and well-being company. A check presentation and celebratory event was held May 2 at its food pantry in Visalia.
The donation will allow VEAC to provide 52,632 pounds of food for its food pantry, which will feed 1,315 families with children.
"Our work depends on the support of our community and partners like Humana," said Iris East, development director of VEAC. "We're honored to receive such a generous donation that will help us drive forward even more meaningful change in our community."
VEAC serves Visalia, Goshen and Ivanhoe by providing food, clothing and household goods to families, seniors and individuals in need.
"Day in and day out, VEAC provides vital food and services to those in the community who need it most," said Rick Beavin, California Medicare president for Humana. "We're thrilled to support this organization and the life-changing work they do every day."
