COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA – For the 10th consecutive year, Callison Tighe & Robinson has donated $10,000 to Harvest Hope Food Bank, bringing the firm’s total contributions over time to close to $110,000.

Callison Tighe made its first donation to Harvest Hope in 2009, as the country and the region struggled to recovery from the recession. The firm’s partners decided that year to contribute to the food bank in lieu of holding a holiday party.

“Though many of us are better off today, far too many of our neighbors still struggle,” Callison Tighe partner Rick Detwiler said. “Hundreds of thousands of people in the area Harvest Hope serves are considered ‘food insecure,’ meaning that they don’t consistently have enough affordable, nutritious food. Harvest Hope helps meet that need.”

Founded in 1981 by business and faith leaders, Harvest Hope has grown to serve 20 counties in South Carolina. It partnered with 506 non-profit agencies to distribute 27.8 million meals in 2017.

Even in the improving economy, for the past four years Harvest Hope has seen an increase in the number of people needing help. According to statistics from Feeding America, roughly 14.9 percent of the population Harvest Hope serves struggles with hunger.
