06 Nov Our Baltimore/DC Team Helps out a Soup Kitchen for Opt2give day 2015
You’d typically see employees of Optomi working the phones on a Thursday, but not on November 5th. Optomi believes in giving back to the extent that it devotes a full day every year to serving in the communities in which it does business. The founders believe in building a culture that genuinely meets the needs of others. During its annual Opt2give day on November 5th, the Baltimore/DC Optomi team donated the non-perishable food items they had been collecting for Paul’s Place (a homeless shelter) and they also served meals in their kitchen.
By the end of 2015, IT staffing firm Optomi will have fed over 1,500 children in the U.S. who would otherwise go to bed hungry every day. Meals given to these children total over 9,000. According to the organization Feeding America, one in 5 children struggles with hunger. Optomi is committed to alleviating this hunger epidemic. Dedication to its people and the communities in which they live/work are central to the mission of Optomi.
