The holidays are a time for giving, especially to those less fortunate. And in 2020, the need for holiday cheer and acts of kindness were greater than ever before. Not unlike Santa Claus himself, member companies of the Ohio Beverage Association made their own special deliveries to many in need across the state.
Coca-Cola Consolidated in Columbus dropped off new blankets and toys to the local YWCA, ensuring every shelter family had something to open on Christmas morning.
PepsiCo teams in Youngstown, Elyria, and Twinsburg donated over $20,000 to area foodbanks and the Salvation Army.
Keurig Dr Pepper in Twinsburg loaded up and delivered more than 600 cases of beverages to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.
