Inspired by SC Johnson’s commitment to make the communities they are located in a better place, the food drive was launched through the message of motivational speaker Inky Johnson. Inky is a former star cornerback for the University of Tennessee who shared his story of overcoming a career-ending injury through hard work, fortitude and “Emptying the Bucket” every day. In addition to the in-schools contests, the entire community was invited to help “Empty the Bucket” and support the Racine County Food Bank by placing non-perishable food items in the specially marked buckets located in Racine-area Pick ‘n Save and Piggly Wiggly stores.
The Racine County Food Bank always welcomes food donations as well as volunteer efforts to help in their cause. For more information, those interested in donating or volunteering can email or call: email@example.com or 262-632-2307.
SC Johnson works to make lives better in the communities in which it does business. Since 1937, the company has given 5 percent of all pretax profits to charities - areas of giving include: community & economic development; education; environment & sustainability; social services; health & wellness and art, culture & the humanities.
