Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists (SOS) recently challenged a local business partner, Practice Resources, LLC (PRL), to a competition to collect food for donation to the Food Bank of Central New York.
The companies have each collected food from their employees through Nov. 20. Representatives from each company delivered their collections on Nov. 23 for the final weigh-off. PRL weighed in with 412 lbs. and SOS with 1,176 lbs. In total, the donations will serve 1,320 families in Central New York.
“PRL is a great local business partner to SOS and we thought a friendly competition could strengthen our relationship while at the same time help area residents in need,” said orthopedist Brett Greenky, president of SOS.
SOS is committed to supporting local nonprofits and the residents they serve. It has partnered with the Food Bank of the CNY many times in the past, including sponsoring its annual Savor Syracuse Event, to ensure they can meet the emergency food needs of the individuals and organizations in the nine counties they serve and support their mission to eliminate hunger.
