100 Totes for Hunger


L.L.Bean and its employees are caring and generous by nature. That’s why it’s no surprise to us that a group of employees wanted to add a little bit extra to the company’s already successful United Way fundraising campaign.


100 Totes for United Way


To celebrate our 100th anniversary, L.L.Bean’s Fulfillment Department employees – the folks who pick, pack and ship your L.L.Bean orders direct from Freeport, Maine – held an employee food drive. The four buildings in the Fulfillment organization were each given 25 of our iconic Boat and Tote bags (generously donated by Brunswick Manufacturing’s Training Department) to fill in their own special way. The employees proudly donated 100 totes holding 1,108 pounds of food to the Good Shepherd Food Bank just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

This year, L.L.Bean and its employees contributed more than $1.5 million dollars to United Way of Greater Portland. This achievement demonstrates our commitment to our local communities.

While the 100 Totes for Hunger goal was a success, food insecurity remains an issue all across the nation. There’s always a way to make a difference, whether dropping off non-perishables to a local food pantry, giving to United Way or spending time volunteering. We hope you’ll join L.L.Bean and lend a hand in your local community.
