Pilgrim's Pride giving away free ice

By Scott Kimbler Reporter

Pilgrim's Pride of Gainesville will be giving away bags of ice for free.

HR Manager Veronica Pierce says the company planned ahead to expect the worst and fared pretty well during Irma, leaving them with a surplus of ice. 

"We wanted to get engaged with the community and try to give back," Pierce said. "So that's what we did. Reaching out to different areas like schools and other areas that may have been effected that are still without power and help them out with their need for ice."

She said they have at least four semi-truck loads of ice to give.

Pierce says if you would like free ice, stop by the Pilgrims Pride office at 920 Queen City Parkway during normal business hours and bring a cooler. 

Pilgrim's will be giving away the ice from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
