I’m taking time out on my blog to celebrate the spirit of giving back. This holiday season my company held an online food drive for a local food pantry. We sent out mailers to clients and friends. On each mailer there was a code. For each person who went online to visit our special microsite and enter their secret code (thereby donating a can of food virtually), we would donate an additional can of food. 250 individuals took us up on our offer and entered their codes online. In all, that meant Jennings would donate 500 cans of food to the Interfaith Council for Social Services (IFC).
Even better, when we approached our local Food Lion grocery store, they generously agree to match our donation – meaning 1,000 cans would go to the food pantry!
Last Friday, my entire team stopped working and headed to our local Food Lion to be a part of the donation. Below are some photos of IFC, Jennings and Food Lion employees picking up the the canned goods at Food Lion and delivering them to IFC. It was definitely a nice way to end the week.
