I am glad that we are once again able to help Metrocrest and the great work they do in our community.
Carrollton, TX (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
This month, the employees at Certified Payment Processing (CPP) concluded their annual Holiday Food Drive designed to help families in the area have a better holiday. Once again, the company teamed with local charity Metrocrest Social Services and more than 900 pounds of food were donated, along with $1,047 in cash donations.
Throughout the month of December, CPP employees were provided information about the important work of Metrocrest in the community, the number of families the charity helps every year, as well as messages about the rising problem of hunger in America and specific statistics about hunger in Texas.
“As always, our team rallied for this food drive and did an amazing job,” say Tony Norrie, Vice President and General Manager. “Throughout the building there was a clear sense of how important this was to people in need at this time of year. There were even friendly competitions within the departments, which increased the excitement and energy. I appreciate their efforts, and am glad that we are once again able to help Metrocrest and the great work they do in our community.”
Metrocrest serves an average of 130 families a week, distributing more than 25 pounds of food per person. Last year, Metrocrest distributed more than 1,600 boxes of food to families in need during the holidays.
Following the three-week Food Drive, member of the Operations Leadership Team also spent half a day volunteering at the Metrocrest Holiday Store.
