It was an exciting April 20th as several staff from our Houston office proudly presented the Houston Food Bank with a $20,000 donation!
Our Houston team rallied together for a campaign to benefit the Food Bank and raised an outstanding $14,375 for the local charity. As a way to help celebrate our 20th Anniversary, the JE Foundation contributed additional funds for an even $20,000 grand total! Every dollar donated provides the equivalent of three meals for an individual in need. The donation will help provide 60,000 meals for hungry neighbors, and amounts to 200,000 lbs. of fresh produce.
In addition to the check presentation, approximately 50 JE employees participated in a GAP day at the food bank to help inspect, sort and inventory food donations. It was a terrific opportunity to not only celebrate the success of their fundraising initiative but also a chance to give back by volunteering their time in the local community.
Great effort by the Houston team in taking the initiative to make a meaningful difference.
