Many of us seek purpose in life. We want to know that we are making a difference in our communities and in the lives of others. Your employees and co-workers want that, too—and they do not have to leave the corporate sector to find it.
Businesses can create purpose-driven environments for staff, and the results are invaluable. Simply create charitable giving programs. Create opportunities for your staff to volunteer, raise funds for good causes or provide services to charities at no charge. Encourage employees to give time, talent and treasure—and then reap the rewards.
Fortunately for the more than 100,000 people we serve monthly, many local businesses already have these sorts of programs directed toward The Food Bank. And we so appreciate that support—in fact, we rely on it.
Of course, the primary reason to consider philanthropic activity is to help others, and needs are great. We know at The Food Bank that one in every six adults and one in every five children right here in Boone County face hunger on a regular basis.
