Plymouth Meeting, PA (December 6, 2011) – Last week, local developer The Goldenberg Group teamed up with 93.3 WMMR radio personalities Preston & Steve to fight hunger in the Delaware Valley as part of the annual ‘Camp Out for Hunger’ food drive, November 28-December 2, benefiting Philabundance.
The Goldenberg Group made a $2,500 donation to the cause. And for the seventh consecutive year, Goldenberg’s Metroplex Shopping Center – the region’s largest open air shopping center, located at the corner of Chemical and Gallagher Road in Plymouth Meeting, PA – was the host site for WMMR’s week-long Camp Out. Preston and Steve spent a week living and broadcasting live from an RV in the Metroplex parking lot, encouraging listeners to drop off canned goods and other non-perishable food items for the needy.
This year’s ‘Camp Out for Hunger’ raised a record $76,000 and 288 tons of food for Philabundance, to be distributed to more than 600 Delaware Valley agencies that operate food cupboards assisting low-income families.
The Goldenberg Group’s participation in ‘Camp Out for Hunger’ falls under the company’s ‘People Helping People’ initiative. Each month, employees devote work time to a community-building event. In the past, employees have read to students at inner city schools; baked for The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, and cooked for the homeless in North Philadelphia; built a Little League baseball diamond at 20th and Tioga Streets in North Philadelphia, and led cleanup and gardening activities at a variety of schools and community centers; painted and cleaned a suburban orphanage; created booths at a special needs day camp; and more.
