MHI Donates MODEX Baggage Check Proceeds


Tuesday, May 08, 2018

MHI is pleased to announce that we are donating the proceeds from the MODEX baggage check to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
 
The revenue, totaling $7,188, will go to food pantries, community kitchens, childcare centers, night shelters, and senior centers in Atlanta and northern Georgia. Every $1 donated provides four meals, for a total of 28,752 meals from this donation.
 
George Prest, CEO of MHI, adds, "At MHI, we like to get involved and are happy to give back. Atlanta has always been a wonderful host for MODEX and giving back to the community just makes sense. We're grateful that we're fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do so."
