Total Beverage Solution is proud to name Lindsay Waters as our “First Class Award” winner for 2021.
Lindsay, Senior Manager of Business Intelligence and Reporting, has been working for TBS since 2009. She was chosen by her peers to receive the “First Class Award” in 2021 as someone who always has a positive and team-oriented attitude and is willing to help her teammates whenever and however she can.
The title comes with a $1,000 prize as well as a matching donation to a non-profit charity of the winner’s choice. This year Lindsay has chosen the Lowcountry Food Bank to receive the $1,000 donation. Lowcountry Food Bank helps feed over 200,000 food-insecure individuals across 10 coastal counties of South Carolina every year.
Lindsay had this to say about why she chose this impactful organization in the Lowcountry:
“As a mom of two picky eaters, I am often stressed about what I will make for dinner that week. I cannot imagine the stress one feels over what they will eat because they simply don’t have access to food. Anyone can fall on hard times, and many must choose between food and paying a bill. In South Carolina, 1 in 9 people faced food insecurity at some point throughout 2021 (and nearly 30% of those impacted were children).
The Lowcountry Food Bank develops and implements community-based solutions to address hunger, improve food security, and provide access to nutritious food. This donation will provide 6,000 meals, helping this organization reach their ultimate goal which is to ensure that no one goes to bed hungry.”
