Local construction crews volunteer at Frostbite Food Drive

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- Hoping to make a difference in the community, Grand Traverse Construction Company and Hallmark Construction came together Friday to volunteer at Father Fred's Frostbite Food Drive.

The companies heard the food drive was running low, so they decided to make it a friendly competition to see who could donate the most boxes.

The loser would have to buy everyone else pizza.

Hallmark Construction brought in a little more than 50 boxes and Grand Traverse Construction brought in close to 100.

“In the end the community wins. It's not win or lose or who has the most. It's we are here together to help out and support the community and Father Fred,” said Ben Herman, Grand Traverse Construction company project manager.

“We work here, we live here, we like to give back to the community. We just want to show everybody that we are construction workers, we build the community so we support it,” said John Miller, Grand Traverse Construction Company truck driver and mechanic.

Those crews volunteered all day at the Team Bobs drop off location on South Airport Road and Park Drive.

Grand Traverse Academy also made a big donation on Friday.

Father Fred still needs more donations to reach their goal of 900 boxes by Sunday, Feb 4.

Drop off locations, include:

  • Team Bobs on South Airport Road and Park Drive.
  • Toms East Bay location
  • Olesons on Hammond Rd.
  • Family Fare near Chums Corner
