TFG Card Solutions is proud to announce the commencement of a new corporate giving program, which will support local organizations through the efforts of our enthusiastic team member-volunteers and contributions.
In the spirit of the holidays TFG chose to host a food drive for The Oregon Food Bank as the first initiative of the giving program. The Oregon Food Bank provides emergency food to people who are hungry through a cooperative statewide network of hunger-relief agencies, helping 1 in 5 households fend off hunger.
To make things interesting, we split the entire office into two teams and had a competition to see which team could bring in the most food items in the week leading up to our corporate holiday party. The team captains were Lucy Vega, Office Manager and Monica Herrera, Sales Coordinator. The team captains creatively inspired their teams each day to get the most cans to support the food drive. The results were amazing.
“Most of the individuals in our office have a passion for their separate charities and giving back to their communities. We wanted to bring the company together as a team and work to support charities across the city as a whole. Our new corporate giving program is the perfect way to do so. When we started the food drive for the Oregon Food Bank I knew the team would do a great job, what they delivered is, quite frankly, astonishing. I can say without hesitation that I have never been more proud of our team,” said TFG’s President Tom Secor.
The results of our food drive were outstanding with Lucy’s team winning and bringing in 1,261 food items and Monica’s team coming in at a very close second with 1,071 food items. Of course, the real winner of all of this was The Oregon Food Bank who received 2,332 items in total to help fight hunger. TFG’s official contribution weighed in at 1,871 pounds, enough to feed hundreds of people.
