Perdue Farms Presents HALO With $100K and Six-month Supply of Chicken

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Perdue Farms' representatives on Thursday presented HALO's Center of Hope with a $100,000 check, along with a six month supply of chicken. 

HOPE Executive Director Celeste Savage says this initiative not only allows them to move forward with the shelter's showers and bathrooms for men, but to feed those in need. 

"I am overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation...last year we served about $71,000...this year were gonna stretch it and let it go a long way," said Savage. 

Director of the Perdue Foundation, Kim Nechay, says this initiative began because of their employees who volunteer with HOPE, and a Perdue associate who wrote a letter asking to donate to the organization. 

HALO's Center of Hope will be hosting a open house on Sunday from 2-4 p.m.., where they will showcase who they are and what they plan on doing in the future.
