vCom held its annual food drive to support the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. We mixed things up this year and divided the company into District North and District South, introducing a Hunger Games theme to help encourage some friendly competition. With barrels to fill with food and donations to collect, the entire company entered into the spirit of the event. District South edged out District North in cash donations, $485 to $403. They were also the first to fill their barrel, adding another $400 to their total donations. Great job to both teams for being so enthusiastic in supporting the food drive!
We also had nine volunteers take time out of their day to sort food at the distribution center. Sameer Hilal, Matt Maratsos, Aneel Tumber, Josie Hernandez, Brie Peters, Rekha Venuthurupalli, Mia Gordon, and Ashley Lee sorted 2,962 pounds of food – the equivalent of 2,370 meals – in two hours!
All told, vCom contributed to 6,482 meals through their food donations, fund raising, and volunteer efforts, 106% over last year’s contribution. Great job, team vCom!
