Employee donations add up to 4,000 cans of food to benefit communities in need
Omaha, Neb. (March 31, 2014) – Employees at Cassling collected cash and food donations equivalent to 4,000 cans of food during the company’s annual food drive. That’s enough cans to stretch around the perimeter of an NCAA basketball court three times.
For the past five years, the company has held local food drives in the various regions it serves. This year, locations included Omaha and York, Neb.; Des Moines and Davenport, Iowa; Sioux Falls, S.D.; Andover, Kan.; and Seattle. Donations are given to each local food pantry.
This is the largest donation ever collected by Cassling employees. The donation amounts to so many cans of food, that stacked on top of each other they would be as tall as 200 Doug McDermotts.
“The annual food drive creates some friendly competition among the different regions, but in the end it’s about improving the communities in which we serve,” said Mike Cassling, president and CEO. “Together we are stronger than we are as individuals. I’m so proud that our employees took that philosophy to heart by donating a record high number of cans in our 2014 food drive.”
The food drive is part of a much larger organizational effort dedicated to community service. The company established its corporate citizenship program, CQuence Cares, to provide opportunities for employees to be involved in community outreach programs. Employees have participated in programs for Habitat for Humanity, the Salvation Army and the Ronald McDonald House.
