Omaha, Neb. (March 9, 2012) – Employees from Cassling collected more than 1,300 food donations to support local food bank organizations across six Cassling territories.
Each year, Cassling holds company-wide State of the Union presentations in various locations. The company-wide competition addressed hunger in America by collecting monetary donations and food items at each event. Each territory donated items to a local food bank.
The 2012 goal was to collect an average of eight items per employee, but employees surpassed the challenge and collected more than 11 items (58 percent more than the previous year’s donations).
“Our employees truly care about the communities we serve. Not only from a professional standpoint but from a personal one,” President and CEO Mike Cassling said. “Service to us means helping others and doing what we can in our communities to make them stronger.”
The outpour of support comes on the coat tails of receiving the 2011 Community Service Award at the Public Relations Society of America Nebraska Gala in December. “I am so proud of our employees and families and know that this recent recognition only pushes us to reach more people. I look forward to what we can accomplish!” Cassling said.
Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity, providing food to more than 37 million Americans every year.
