The Nourish Now team with a racing truck

ROCKVILLE (November 23, 2020) - Halmar Friesen Nascar Racing Team raced to Montgomery County and Prince George’s County on Friday to deliver a ton (2000 pounds) of holiday meals to needy families on behalf of Halmar International. Halmar partnered with Nourish Now, a food bank located in Rockville as well as with Prince George’s County.

 “Partnerships with local non-profits like Nourish Now and local governments such as Prince George’s County are a part of who we are,” stated Chris Larsen, CEO of Halmar International. “We take great pride in being a part of the community fabric where we work and what better time to demonstrate that then Thanksgiving.”

Halmar International recently announced it will be moving its mid-Atlantic regional office to Maryland. Halmar is a leading highway and bridge contractor with an earned reputation for delivering some of the most complex projects in the Northeast.

“Nourish Now is grateful to Halmar for including us in their charitable giving program,” stated Brett Meyers, Founder and Executive Director of Nourish Now. “Their generous donation of Thanksgiving meals provides our organization with the opportunity to feed additional families struggling with food insecurity.”

As a part of the distribution by Nourish Now and Prince George’s County, the donated food will provide a holiday meal to several hundred families. This is part of Halmar’s ongoing effort to combat hunger. Earlier this year, Halmar provided a truck load of food to the Manna Food Bank as a part of its Race Against Hunger Campaign and more than $70,000 donated to local non-profits to support at-risk families. 

“We appreciate the generous donation by Halmar,” stated Sonja Wilborne-Rice, Director of Stakeholder Engagement, Office of the County Executive, Prince George’s County. “To see the faces of the Veterans and disabled members of our community who benefited from their donation is very rewarding. We look forward to continuing a long partnership with Halmar.”
