Last week, the marketing team decided to forego our morning meetings and mounds of emails and instead donated our time at the Placer Food Bank. We tackled huge bins of food, sorting the many pounds of donations into categories for easy distribution. Throughout the morning we raced around making quick decisions on whether that Cup Noodles went into the pasta or small dry goods bin – a nice retreat from making those similar decisions on whether to increase radio buys here or digital interaction there. We are so thankful for the food bank to let this motley crew into their warehouse to bond as a team while giving back.
The Placer Food Bank is a food clearinghouse for those in need in Placer, El Dorado, and Nevada Counties. They collect, organize, and distribute nearly 6 million pounds of food every year, serving an average of 48,000 seniorcitizens, children, and low-income, handicapped, or disabled individuals. The work that they do for this community is tremendous and we are ever-thankful to be a small part of their efforts.
