ThermoFisher

Bounty & Soul recently received two
brand new refrigerators from Thermo Fisher
Scientific. After learning about Bounty &
Soul’s mission of health and wellness through
empowerment and education, Thermo Fisher felt
compelled to support the organization with much
needed refrigeration. The top notch, laboratory
grade single and triple door units were donated
to give Bounty & Soul the capacity to store between
400 and 500 pounds more fresh produce and other
healthy staples including eggs, yogurt and hummus.
