Required fields are marked * Protravel International’s agents and employees supported local food banks by donating over 2,370 pounds of food items, raising nearly $5,000 in donations and volunteering 147 hours as part of Travel Leaders Group’s nationwide “Day of Giving” on July 7.In Pasadena, Protravel employees collected food, donated cash and volunteered at food banks including Feed SoCal and St. Vincent de Paul during the company’s fourth “Day of Giving” activity.“As an essential part of Protravel’s culture, we believe that giving back to our communities is simply the right thing to do, particularly during the hot summer months when the demand for food rises as families in need aren’t able to rely on lunch programs while school is out,” said Gail Grimmett, President of Protravel International. “Our employees and agents demonstrated their compassion by selflessly volunteering their time, collecting 4,796 food items, and offering financial donations to our local food banks. With our participation in the Day of Giving, we hope to make a difference and inspire others to join us in our efforts to stamp out hunger.”This year, Protravel International’s efforts benefitted at least 16 food relief and community centers in the United Sates and the United Kingdom, including those in Pasadena. Protravel also conducted food donation and volunteering activities in three other California areas – Beverly Hills, Encino and Palm Desert.The activity significantly exceeded last year’s participation and ultimately collected more than 51,746 food items weighing about 19,400 pounds – nearly 9.7 tons, according to Protravel.Close to 500 Travel Leaders Group employees and travel agents volunteered more than 1,000 hours with the local food banks.In Pasadena, Protravel has offices at 119 W. California Blvd. where its team of professionals helps people plan their travel domestically or overseas.
