Our own Jon Cramer has been volunteering for years helping feed the hungry on Thanksgiving.

2018 November 30

For more than 25 years, the Salvation Army and Golden Corral have been partnering in central Florida to help feed the hungry on Thanksgiving — and alpscontrols.com’s Jon Cramer (he’s our Regional Sales Manager in the Southeast) and his wife have dedicated hundreds and hundreds of hours over the years volunteering to help give back to those in need.

The annual Helpings From the Heart event serves about 20,000 meals including ham, turkey – about 6,000 pounds of it! – and all the fixings. It takes around 1,000 volunteers each year to pull it off.

Here’s a 2014 news report from Orlando’s WFTV Channel 9 in which Jon is featured:

Eric Holm, Golden Corral’s CEO, says:

We’re proud that we can give back to the community in this scale. I’m most proud of the thousand-plus volunteers that come together to help us out here.

Great job, Jon! All of us at alpscontrols.com are grateful for your dedication and proud to know you!
