06 Nov Our Charlotte Team Runs a Mobile Food Bank for Opt2give day 2015
As an IT staffing firm, the employees of Optomi typically spend their workday recruiting and selling its services, but not Thursday. During its annual Opt2give day November 5th, the Optomi Charlotte team worked with the Second Harvest Food Bank’s Mobile Pantry Program. The Mobile Pantry is dedicated to providing families of children attending Berryhill the opportunity to shop for food items free of charge.
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.
The IT staffing firm believes that a culture of “doing the right thing” is good business. The company chooses to use its business as a driver for charitable contributions.
