In an effort to give back to its community, Advantage Sign Supply has selected Kids' Food Basket as its 2012 charity.
Kids' Food Basket is a force for "Attacking Childhood Hunger in greater Grand Rapids." Kids' Food Basket began over nine years ago and now serves over 4,800 children each weekday by providing a Sack Supper to children who live in food-insecure homes. Sack Suppers are evening meals that provide 1000 calories and five food groups—nutrition that's critical to the development of kids' brains and bodies.

Employees in Advantage's corporate office in Grand Rapids, MI can make monetary donations in exchange for wearing jeans on the last day of each month. Advantage has had high participation in the program, and has contributed over $750 to the charity so far this year.
"Advantage Sign Supply is excited to contribute to our community," said Leslie Fiorenzo, Advantage Sign Supply, Human Resources Manager. "We're honored to be a supporter of Kids' Food Basket and look forward to additional charity events in the future."
