Bimbo Bakeries USA, makers of bread and baked goods brands like Thomas’, Sara Lee and BallPark, donated a new picnic area to the Boys and Girls Club of East Mississippi as part its national Good Neighbor program. The covered pavilion will be used as an outdoor classroom or lunch spot in good weather.
“This program truly demonstrates Bimbo’s commitment to the communities where we live and work,” said Dana Connors, senior director, corporate affairs. “All of our bakeries receive $5,000 annually to support local initiatives. It is just one more way we give back to our associates, their families and our customers and consumers.”
Bimbo’s Good Neighbor program has supported many Mississippi initiatives over the years through donations and associate volunteering, including donating a fitness center to the Boys and Girls Club of East Mississippi in 2018.
