Four employees at Diversified Communications' head quarters in Portland, Maine recently issued a challenge to their 200 colleagues – Collect 2,000 pounds of food to donate to Preble Street’s food pantry, in support of their Stop Summer Hunger campaign. Diversified employees met the challenge three times over, collecting 6,841 pounds of food, a $10,000 donation equivalent, in two weeks.
“Knowing that families’ need for food increases when children are out of school, Nicole Dunbar, Imani Clark, Tonya Fowler and I worked with Ray Hepler, Resource Development Assistant at Preble Street to coordinate Diversified’s first Help Stop Summer Hunger! Food Drive & Competition,” said Janice Rogers, Diversified’s Vice President of Human Resources. “The true inspiration behind this, however, was two young girls from Waterville, Maine who asked for food donations for their school’s food pantry in lieu of birthday presents, and ended up raising $40,000 in food and donations.”
