Jeans BeCause Recipient – St. Louis Area Foodbank


4,800 Meals! That’s what the St. Louis Area Foodbank will be able to provide thanks to a generous donation from The Daniel and Henry Co.

Through the Jeans BeCause initiative, along with a Selective Insurance Group Foundation Matching Grant, representatives from The Daniel and Henry Co. were able to present a $1,200 check to The St. Louis Area Foodbank.  Pictured are Senior VP Matt Dace (STL Foodbank), Don Hiemenz (The Daniel and Henry Co.), VP of Finance Ben Spirk (STL Foodbank) and Wes Mellow (The Daniel and Henry Co.) on Wednesday afternoon.  

The St. Louis Area Foodbank began its service to the community in 1975. Since that time, the organization has grown to become the bi-state region’s largest nonprofit 501(c)(3) food distribution center dedicated to feeding those in need. Through a network of more than 500 partner agencies in 26 counties in Missouri and Illinois, the Foodbank distributed 25 million pounds of food and personal care items in 2012. Each week, more than 57,000 people in the bi-state region rely on the Foodbank for assistance.  For more information on the organization and the issue of hunger, please visit:
