SVL supports the BEAR’ly Open with a donation of 535 lbs. of Food!

SVL Food Drive Inspired A Friendly Competition In the Office!

SVL was a proud sponsor of the White Bear Lake BEAR’ly Open – Golf on Ice winter fun event. The 11th annual BEAR’ly Open event takes place on White Bear Lake in support of the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf. In addition to SVL’s sponsorship and participation, SVL partnered with AQC and held an internal office food drive. There were donation boxes in front of the principal and general managers offices for donations.

As an added incentive, the principal or general manager with most donation items in their box had to dress up in Green Bay Packer gear for an entire work day! Needless to say there was a lot of friendly competition as employees rolled in donations for their favorite Vikings fans. Our lucky winner was Al Gramse with a donation count of 154 items! The final tally was 340 items or 535 lbs. of food donated to help those in need. Thank you to BEAR’ly Open and the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf, we had a blast working with your organizations!

Below are a few commemorative photos…
