January 5, 2023
SARANAC, Mich. – Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch today announced it has donated 2.2 million eggs this year, topping the number of eggs donated by the fourth-generation family business in any previous year.
“Herbruck’s is so proud to have donated 2.2 million eggs during 2022, an ambitious goal we set at the beginning of the year,” said Amy Herbruck, public and community relations manager at Herbruck’s. “We strive to be a good neighbor to the communities we serve and are grateful to be able to help those in need and give back.”
Herbruck’s has consistently donated more than 1 million eggs per year, mostly to local and regional charities and nonprofits, and the number of eggs donated grows each year.
Organizations receiving eggs include dozens of nonprofits and community groups across Michigan and organizations in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania, where Herbruck’s began production at Blue Springs Egg Farm, a sustainable cage-free egg-laying facility.
Along with eggs, Herbruck’s donates funding and other resources to organizations for events and charitable activities, like wrapping gifts to distribute with Toys for Tots.
“With egg donations from Herbruck’s included, we were able to provide 18,720 meals to more than 8,500 people in Ionia County in 2022,” said Terry Lewis, food pantry director at Ionia Church of the Nazarene. “Eggs from Herbruck’s supplied a much-needed source of protein for some of our most vulnerable community members, and it brings joy to our hearts that through the partnership with Herbruck’s we’re making a difference and showing our community that we care about our neighbors.”
