Pines Provides Relief for Bahamas Hurricane Victims
Pines International is stepping up to help victims of Hurricane Dorian, the deadly category 5 storm that hit The Bahamas at the end of August. Pines is donating a pallet of Green Duo to provide the people displaced by Dorian with green superfoods nutrition.
Co-Founders Ron Seibold and Steve Malone, who started Pines 43 years ago in 1976, stand next to a pallet of Green Duo capsules destined for the hurricane-ravaged islands of Bahamas. The pallet contains 98 cases of Green Duo. That's 1,176 bottles at a retail price of $32.25 each or a total of $37,926 worth of dark green vegetable nutrition.
Each bottle contains 43 servings of dark green veggies. Each serving is equivalent to a serving of spinach, kale or other greens. That's means this pallet contains 50,568 servings of dark green vegetables.
The shipment is through the Children's Feeding Network (www.childrensfeedingnetwork.org), which is one of the organizations Pines has supported since it first started its food donation program to hungry and nutritionally-deficient people worldwide in 1980.
