One of the great advantages of our national expansion is the greater opportunity we have to help the communities in which our associates live and work.
For three days in August, ReminderMedia employees representing areas across the company gave of their time to help process thousands of pounds of food and pack thousands of meals in support of Caring for Friends in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Feeding America in other states in the south and west.
Bruce Fowler, a ReminderMedia sales associate said of his experience volunteering in Plano, Texas, “It’s easy to lose sight of how fortunate we are to have access to food when we’re hungry. It felt good to volunteer. I’m grateful for the opportunity.”
Another volunteer, Terence Dixon, volunteering in Missouri City, Texas, said, “It felt good to give back and help. It really keeps you humbled to realize how fortunate we are to be able to get food or have a place to stay. I truly appreciate the opportunity and I’m looking forward to many more in the future.”
In total, 60 employees supported food banks in 14 local communities, including communities in Texas, Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania.
About Caring for Friends
Caring for Friends was founded on the premise that no one should be hungry or alone in a world of caring people. Many know the physical and mental toll that hunger has on people. But most don’t know that loneliness can increase the chance of dementia, depression, and heart disease. To fight both, Caring for Friends deliver food and friendship to seniors, veterans, and those with disabilities by bringing meals and visiting with their clients. They also make monthly calls to check in and see how clients are doing.
