in 2022, we ended a year of giving with a drive for local food pantries, dubbed “Aevitas Giving Games”.
Through the month of December, athletes were encouraged to bring in non-perishable food items and place them under our Giving Tree at each Aevitas location. We used a Reverse Advent calendar, provided by the Guilderland Food Pantry, to help people decide what items to bring in each day.
Every time an athlete brought an item in, they were also encouraged to put their name on a raffle ticket and place it into a box next to the tree. This way, at the end of the month we could draw for a winner at each location – just a small incentive!
The results are in and we are so very pleased with how this charity went in 2022! Each gym contributed several HUNDRED pounds of food!! Guilderland items were donated to the Guilderland Food Pantry just across Charles Park from Aevitas. Items brought into Round Lake were donated to the Shenendehowa Helping Hands Food Pantry.
And, we drew for a winner at each location! Congratulations to Liz R. (Guilderland) and Carrie C. (Round Lake) for being chosen! We have a small prize for you, which we will make sure gets into your hands this coming week.
THANK YOU again to everyone who contributed to this cause, along with all of the other community and charity causes we support throughout the year. Your kindness and compassion for others is just one of the many reasons why the Aevitas community is so very special!
