Tahitian Noni Service, Sales Agents Accomplish Goal
Many groups do special projects to help people in need around Christmas, so in October they tend to stock up, "leaving donations in October far short of what food banks need," according to Tahitian Noni officials.
What is "noni," you ask? We didn't know either, but according to What Is Noni? it's a natural white fruit about the size as a potato which "has a bitter taste and doesn’t smell good."
So the sales and service agents at Tahitian Noni International have been holding special activities for the last three months to benefit the local charity. August was their "money war" spare change challenge, company officials say, "where they gathered over a thousand dollars in mostly quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies."
And it worked. The money raised purchased 120 jars of peanut butter, 1,752 cans of food such as vegetables, fruits, soups, tuna and beans, 90 gallons of powdered milk, 90 quarts of juice, 117 boxes of cereal and 152 boxes of macaroni and cheese.
All of the articles were delivered to Community Action Services in Provo, but the company isn’t done yet: "Sales and service agents are now looking at how they can help during the upcoming holiday season, as well."
