We are a company built around the skills required for sales. Employees found ways to leverage these skills to gather donations from around the community.
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
NuGrowth Community, which is the philanthropic arm of Strategic Insurance Software and its parent company NuGrowth Solutions, donated 4,444 pounds of food and $850 to the Mid Ohio Foodbank in February.
The combination of food and funds donated by NuGrowth Community will result in approximately 6,994 meals for the hungry in central Ohio. The donation helped kick off the Mid Ohio Foodbank’s annual “Operation Feed” campaign.
“We are about sharing our strengths and giving back to the community,” said Beth Wenning, Manager of Organizational Development. “We like to have fun, compete, and give. During the food drive this year we saw a lot of innovation that led to a big increase in the amount we donated to the Mid Ohio Foodbank.”
Employees at SIS and NuGrowth Solutions divided into six teams. Although the team that donated the most received a half day of vacation, enthusiasm for the food drive was fueled by competitive spirit and a desire to make a positive impact in the community. While in past years the teams purchased food to donate, this year they also used their talents to solicit donations.
“We are a company built around the skills required for sales, and employees found ways to leverage these skills to gather donations from around the community,” Wenning said.
These extra efforts, spurred by innovative thinking on the part of team members, led to a nearly 50% increase in the amount of food donated and an additional $850 cash donation.
Mid Ohio Foodbank’s Colin Baumgartner explained the significance of the donation made by NuGrowth Community: “The donation of food and money donated by NuGrowth Community was tremendous. A lot of people don’t understand the impact one dollar can have. The truth of the matter is that there is a lot of need in central Ohio.”
The Mid Ohio Foodbank is a member of the nation's largest non-governmental, domestic hunger relief organization—Feeding America. Its goal is to make food accessible to hungry people in their greatest times of need. It serves central to eastern Ohio.
