Helping in the Fight to Eradicate Hunger in America

Mid Atlantic employees collect 4,257 items! 

Last week, Mid Atlantic, in conjunction with loyal business partner Derek Fiorenza and his non-profit organization Fiorenza’s Food for Friends (F4), hosted its 3rd Annual Food Drive..

Staff were organized into three separate teams which enthusiastically came together to donate items such as canned tuna, canned fruit, beans, grains, pasta, and personal hygiene products.  We saw a steady flow of donations up until the last day of the challenge, which is when things really heated up!  Team members were racing out in a last minute push to win.

We are thrilled to report that Mid Atlantic employees raised a total of 4,257 items for our friends at the Oakland CHS Food Pantry. We are truly grateful to everyone involved for making the Mid Atlantic’s 3rd Annual Food Drive its most successful yet!

In the Spotlight: DRL Group and The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™

Recently, Mid Atlantic reached out to one of our newest registered representatives, David Loesch with the DRL Group, to learn more about his involvement with The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™. Mid Atlantic always likes to share with its family how our business partners go above and beyond their daily business to have a positive effect on the community.

The Houston Livestock Show™ has promoted the breeding and marketing of the livestock industry in the Texas Gulf Coast region. David Loesch got involved in 1997 because he wanted to give back to the community and in particular to the youth: “This Rodeo is much more than just a Rodeo, it is a vehicle for young people to shape their future.”

Each year, the Houston Livestock Show™ draws thousands of Texas 4-H and FFA exhibitors to compete. Each exhibitor works several months to prepare. Participants are between the ages of 9 and 18, are Texas residents and are members of a Texas 4-H Club or FFA Chapter.  More than 750 scholarships are awarded. 1st place winners can be awarded as much as $36,000!

Mr. Loesch commented: “As you know, Texas is a large state! Last year only 330 animals made it to the judging. There is a lesson in the disappointment as well. The young people are involved in raising these animals. It teaches them discipline, respect, and commitment.”

A week-long celebration leading up to opening day of the Rodeo began on February 20. The rodeo itself will run from Feb. 27 – March 18, 2018. It is an impressive operation to say the least. Mr. Loesch hopes that the team at Mid Atlantic will get the opportunity to come and enjoy this experience!
