Concord firm collects more than 7,000 Jiffy boxes for local food banks
A Concord supplier of electrical wiring devices and lighting controls recently collected more than seven thousand boxes of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix for local food banks.
Pass & Seymour, the supplier in question, collected the boxes of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix during a Jiffy Challenge that it held for the first time this year.
During the event, the company gathered a total of 7,689 boxes of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, or four and a half pallets. After calling around to local food pantries, even organizer Sarah Bernhart said that Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix was the biggest need.
Bernhart explained that the plant employees were divided up into half a dozen teams across the three shifts, and were assigned with the task of collecting the maximum possible number of corn muffin mix boxes.
Before the final day of the challenge Wednesday night, local stores were totally out of the corn muffin mix and the winning team had to take a trip to Charlotte to get more boxes. They brought in 1,500 boxes.
Speaking on the topic, Bernhart said, “They got competitive with themselves … The employees have been just incredibly enthusiastic.”
Two of the collected pallets were delivered to Concord-based Operation Breadbasket last Thursday, while half of a pallet was delivered to the Baptist Sharing House in the city yesterday.
