Food Drive Supports Nonprofit

ALTRES employees launched a canned food drive to benefit The Pantry, by Feeding Hawai‘i Together. Since the food drive coincided with the NFL Super Bowl, it was aptly named Souper Bowl and took place over the course of three weeks. More than 12,000 items, including Vienna sausage, chili, beans, ramen and soup, were donated to The Pantry. Additionally, the ALTRES Foundation gifted a $25,000 donation. Photo courtesy ALTRES
