TTS once again held our annual Food Drive for The Community Harvest Food Bank for Northeast Indiana during the week of December 12 – 16. The theme this year was “Who’s your Reindeer?”

This year’s teams were (in order of finish):

  • Team Dasher – Meters/Precision Meters/ Chemical – Reindeer – Ben Freiburger
  • Team Blitzen – Large Pumps -  Reindeer -  Britney Browning
  • Team Comet – Logistics/New Products - Reindeer – Spider Dollinger
  • Team Prancer – Hand Pumps/Systems & Components/Maintenance – Reindeer -  Larry Angel
  • Team Dancer – Small Pumps – Reindeer – Brian Grothaus

The Food Drive Committee members were Ben Freiburger, Kimberly Trygg, Carie Parsons, Clay Davis, Britney Browning, Adam Potts, Alan Etzkorn

People voted with their donations, and the team that had the highest total weight at the end was the winner!  Their prize? Leaving 30 minutes early on 12/22, and getting to see their appointed “Reindeer” dress up as Rudolph for the Christmas luncheon.

Final totals for the drive were:

  • Cash/Checks - $2,488.46
  • Food - 457.2 lb.
  • Water - 4.33 cases.

It was another successful year that will help a great number of people in and around the greater Fort Wayne area.  The Community Harvest Food Bank distributes nearly 10 million meals annually.  TTS loves partnering with such an incredible program.  Everyone gets involved in the competition and the results are always as fun as they are rewarding!
