"It was important to me, as chairman, that
we leave something in the community," Mr.
Osborne said. "We may not all be Bill Gates,
but it's important to leave a little dent where
we can. That's the whole idea with this service
day - to be thankful and make a little dent."
BEMA has also partnered with member
companies as well as bakers to support the
causes that mean the most to them.
In 2017 the association donated a total of
$2,500 to Heart to Heart International for hurricane relief. And at the 2017 Convention's
"reverse black tie" chairman's dinner, attendees donned casual attire in exchange
for monetary donations to the CROP Hunger
Walk, which supports grassroots hunger

that Corbion invited us to help pack these
meals," said Kerwin Brown, BEMA president
and CEO. "We're excited to see how all our
members give back to their communities
during the holidays."

"We must always think about
how we can give back to the
industry for all it's given us, but
we must also think about how
lucky we are as individuals and
give to our communities."
