Borden Dairy Delivers 45,000 Milk Servings for Hurricane Florence Victims and First Responders


DALLAS, TX
Friday, September 21st, 2018

Borden Dairy is jumping into action with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina and World Central Kitchen to bring 45,000 servings of whole, 2 percent, and chocolate milk to Hurricane Florence victims and first responders. Processed and packaged in the company’s London, KY, plant last Friday, the shipment is a special order for the relief efforts and has been transported and stored in the company’s state-of-the-art refrigerated trucks to keep the order at maximum freshness.

Tony Sarsasm, CEO, Borden Dairy“Caring for our communities is at the heart of our values and history as a company,” said CEO Tony Sarsam. “Borden is incredibly thankful that we were in a position to provide aid, and our thoughts are with the first responders and those who were displaced from their homes and routines this past week as a result of Hurricane Florence.”

The company’s North Charleston, South Carolina, plant employs almost 170 people and was closed on September 11th in accordance with the state’s mandatory evacuation order. On September 16th, it reopened in the morning, but a result of the closure was a temporary shift in production across its network of 12 place locations so as to keep customers’ orders filled.

In addition to this focus, the company specially produced additional milk to donate to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina and World Central Kitchen, which distributed the milk among evacuee shelters and centers serving local communities in Wilmington and surrounding counties.

Those wanting to donate to Borden’s efforts can visit either the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina here or World Central Kitchen here.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by Hurricane Florence at this time.
