Last month, Breakthru Beverage South Carolina participated in a company-wide volunteer initiative where it donated more than 2,000 food items to local food banks Fairfield Community Food Bank, Lowcountry Food Bank and Harvest Hope Food Bank. Breakthru Beverage Group’s 7,000 employees across North America donated more than 25,000 items of food to local food banks across its 14 markets throughout the United States and in Canada.

Breakthru has a steady commitment to the communities in which they live and work, and regularly supports charitable initiatives to make them the best they can be. Breakthru Gives Back week serves in addition to the longstanding community partnerships each market is proud to represent.

“Community outreach is something we are passionate about and sits at the core of our company values. We have a multi-pronged approach that covers the entire state of South Carolina, of which our primary focus is on the one in six people within the state who are going hungry, said Breakthru Beverage South Carolina President Sean O’Connor. “Giving back is at the core of who we are, and it is a practice which our associates are passionate about. Together we give back, together we help those in need, TOGETHER WE BREAKTHRU!”  

During the Breakthru Gives Back week, each Breakthru market hosted an on-site food drive where employees donated food to be delivered to local food banks, selected by the individual markets.

Greg Baird, President and CEO of Breakthru Beverage Group said, “Our community involvement efforts is a core aspect of our identity. As an industry leader, we are dedicated to being a force for good and steering positive change whenever possible.”

In addition, Breakthru Beverage South Carolina has had a long-standing relationship with the Lowcountry Food Bank, who they have partnered with over the years to help provide for those in need within the greater Charleston Metropolitan area.
