Great Dane furnishing reefers for Second Harvest

Successful Dealer Staff September 11, 2013

great_dane_reeferGreat Dane is furnishing two 53-foot Everest refrigerated trailers to America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia (Second Harvest) to store frozen foods salvaged after the non-profit food bank’s 30,000 cubic foot walk-in freezer recently collapsed.

Great Dane, which built a new custom refrigerated trailer for Second Harvest earlier this year, is lending the food bank the additional trailers for up to six months – the estimated time it will take for the freezer repairs to be completed – at no cost. The two refrigerated trailers replace four cold storage trucks initially rented on an emergency basis after the collapse. With the borrowed Great Dane trailers, Second Harvest expects to realize more than $43,200 in rental fee savings throughout the six months of freezer repair.

Second Harvest worked last week to save as much frozen food as possible after the roof of its walk-in freezer unexpectedly collapsed over the Labor Day holiday weekend due to unknown causes.
