Employer Advantage recently held a food drive supporting local charities in each of the cities in which the company operates. Employees at the Kansas City, Mesa, Ariz., and Joplin, Mo., offices and one remote employee in Siloam Springs, Ark., collected 1.6 tons of non-perishable food for those in need.
To encourage teamwork and participation, Employer Advantage made the drive a friendly competition and divided employees among two teams: blue and orange, the company colors. Employees enjoyed the camaraderie, competition and giving back. Everyone felt like a winner!
The KC office’s donations went to the Catholic Charities Food Pantry in Overland Park, Kan. Donations from the Arizona office went to the C.A.N. Food Pantry at the Church of the Master in Mesa. The Joplin office’s donations went to Lion Co-Op (MSSU Food Pantry), Lafayette House and Watered Gardens in Joplin. Donations also went to Helping Hands Ministries in Carl Junction, Mo. Lastly, the donations from the remote employee in Arkansas went to the Manna Center in Siloam Springs.
