The BEL 252 Gets a Workout at the 2015 Judy Mason Thanksgiving Basket Project
Date Posted: 11/6/2015
When Ed Moss, VP of Sales and Marketing at R.V. Evans Company, received the call asking if R.V. Evans had a machine that would help tape the bottoms of boxes for the Judy Mason Thanksgiving Basket Project his answer was "absolutely!" The BEL 252 semi-automatic top and bottom carton taping machine got a good workout on Friday, November 6th as 80+ LSA Seniors volunteered to tape the bottoms of over 4,000 boxes that will be used to house 18-25 food items each. These baskets will be delivered to families in need throughout Macon County for Thanksgiving.
According to project organizer, Julia Roundtree Livingston, with the help of the BEL 252 and all of the LSA students, this will be the 1st year all 4,000 boxes will be assembled in one day and ready for volunteers to fill with food on November 7, 14, 21, and 22. Mark your calendar and attend any or all of the following community volunteer days to fill boxes and share in the joy of this wonderful project of giving.
Location: 1550 E. McBride Avenue, Decatur IL 62526
Along with volunteering, you may also contribute with a monetary donation. A single box feeds a family of five and costs $25.00. Tax deductible donations can be made at feed5for25.com
