Lifting Long Island, NY Food Bank
ABLE Equipment was proud to donate an SJIII 4632 DC scissor lift to Island Harvest Food bank in Long Island, NY. The donated scissor lift, with a working height of 83ft (11.58m) and overall capacity of 700lbs (318kg), helped volunteers sort off-site warehouse space together with volunteers from Mitigation Solutions LLC.
The sorting project helped volunteers create 15,000 family meal boxes that were distributed to those in need in the Long Island area. Island Harvest's mission is to reach out to the most vulnerable in the community to combat the ongoing effects of COVID-19.
As a result of Island Harvest Food Bank’s dynamic business model, more than 94% of resources expended goes directly to programs and services that support over 316,000 Long Islanders facing hunger.
