Trident Marketing, a Southern Pines-based company, held it’s 2007 Kick Off Party Saturday, January 13th at The Fair Barn in Pinehurst. A highlight for the company’s founder, Steve Baldelli, was the company’s large contribution of food to The Food Bank of Eastern and Central North Carolina.
The roughly 200 local employees collected over 1500 items, including canned goods, baby food and dry goods. The company has gladly matched the contribution of its employees with a donation of an additional 1500 cans. This was the company’s first annual food drive. The Food Bank of Eastern and Central North Carolina, with this donation, will service the Interfaith Food Panty, Bethesda Presbyterian Church, St. Anthony’s Church, Sandhills Moore Coalition, along with over 50 local agencies. John Lenzi of the Food Bank stated that the donation was 2653 pounds, the most from any one local organization.
