The Greater Good Charities
Our program will not only cover the state of Maine, but also surrounding states.
The Greater Good Charities
sources and manages excess, re-branded, and short-dated food and supplies from manufacturers, distributors, and retailers.
then makes these products available to qualified and approved distribution groups (Ambassadors) using a fee arrangement similar to a food bank model. That is, the goods are donated, but freight, warehouse, and program costs are met by handling
fees and donations.
Ambassadors receive shipments of humanitarian and/or animal products, typically 18-wheeltruckloads, either directly from donors through GGC management or directly from GGC. Once received, Ambassadors store, manage, and distribute the donated products to qualified organizations (Recipients) within their geographic areas.
