Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch donated more eggs in 2021 than it has before.
The Saranac egg producer said it donated 1.8 million eggs this year, surpassing its annual average of 1 million.
The eggs donated over the past two years were given to help families in need throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The (past) couple of years have been difficult for all of us, and because being a good neighbor is one of our core values, we want to help as many people as we can by supplying delicious, nutritious eggs to those in need,” said Greg Herbruck, president of Herbruck’s. “This year, we donated more eggs than ever before, and we’re proud to help our community in this way.”
Hundreds of thousands of eggs also were donated to dozens of local and regional charities and nonprofits. Eggs also were donated to organizations in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania, where Herbruck’s is constructing Blue Springs Egg Farm, a sustainable, cage-free egg-laying facility.
“We can’t begin to express how much we value our partnership with Herbruck’s, and we are so thankful for the donation of eggs for the families we serve,” said Kenneth R. Estelle, president and CEO of Feeding America West Michigan. “Many of the people we serve are struggling through the continuing pandemic, so we’re grateful to be able to give to support them in any way we can.”
Besides eggs, Herbruck’s also donates money and resources to local nonprofits, events and community organizations.
