During National Volunteer Week, the Community Relations team at Thomson Reuters in Eagan, Minn., put out a challenge to employees. For every employee who attended a volunteer fair to learn about nonprofit agencies and how their needs have changed in the current economy, the company would donate a meal to Second Harvest Heartland.
Needless to say, employees in Eagan rose to the challenge. In all, 940 meals will be donated.
“Not only is there an increased need with individuals suffering these tough economic times, but nonprofit agencies – and food shelves in particular – have seen an incredible increase in demand as more people need help and fewer are able to donate,” said Martha Field, manager, Community Relations.
