As part of its ongoing efforts to help its neighbors, NG Advantage donated 150 Thanksgiving packages to the Milton Family Community Center. This donation will comprise half of MFCC’s overall goal of 300 Thanksgiving packages.

“NG Advantage recognizes the significant impact made when we can contribute to the good work our local community organizations do for our neighbors in need,” said NG Advantage CEO Rico Biasetti. “We also call on our partners in the business community to join us in the spirit of giving, and urge them to support these key programs that so many local residents rely on not only during the holidays, but year-round.”

“We focus on empowering families and individuals by providing crucial and accessible services, while also fostering a sense of belonging for our neighbors in the community,” said Vikki Patterson, MFCC executive director. “NG Advantage’s generous donation helps provide Thanksgiving dinners for residents who otherwise would not be able to afford a traditional holiday celebration.”

MFCC’s mission is to build strong communities through empowering individuals and families with access to innovative services and programs. The center organizes food donations for their emergency food shelf, facilitates full-day/full-year preschool programs for toddlers and infants and offers after-school childcare. Through these and other crucial financial and social support services, MFCC serves 150 families every month, and relies on the generosity of their volunteers, residents and local businesses to ensure that these families and individuals have food on their table and the support they deserve.

“NG Advantage is hoping today’s donation helps spur a ripple effect that encourages other local businesses and organizations to donate their time and the resources to allow these worthy causes to flourish,” said Biasetti.

MFCC is still calling for Thanksgiving packages donations. Each package includes turkey (or other meat), stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, vegetables, potatoes, sweet potatoes, biscuits and dessert.
