The team at We Sell Restaurants in the Palm Beach and Broward County franchises put their hands and hearts to work just before the Thanksgiving holiday to feed those in need.Hannah Eisenband led a South Florida team of volunteers to raise more than $3,000 for the Palm Beach County Food Pantry, Boca Helping Hands. Boca Helping Hands (BHH) is a community-based 501(c)(3) organization that provides food, medical and financial assistance to meet basic human needs as well as education, job training and guidance to create self-sufficiency.
Hannah Eisenband began this passion project when she decided to create Thanksgiving Meal Baskets for Boca Helping Hands to distribute to local families in need during this holiday season. When speaking with friends, Hannah decided to expand on her original plan and make it a community event. Hannah and her team planned on assisting ten families in need with food baskets for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Hannah got in touch with dozens of community members and in the course of 24 hours, had not only met the original goal but tripled it. Food was purchased and fifteen baskets of love were prepared. Donations continued to come in and those funds were presented along with the baskets to Boca Helping Hands.
Over $750 was raised in the span of 48 hours. The We Sell Restaurants Charitable Trust matched that amount, creating donations in excess of $1500. An anonymous donor matched that amount creating more than $3,000 in both monetary and food products donated to Boca Helping Hand Food Pantry to help families in need.
We are so proud of the impact that We Sell Restaurants has made to our local community.
