Greenheck Fights Hunger
Greenheck Group employees raised more than $28,000 to fight hunger in the U.S.
Greenheck Group team members raised $28,000 in one month to help fight hunger in communities across the country. The campaign, organized by the Greenheck Group Women’s Network, was initiated as a way to continue to live the company’s values during the pandemic when, according to The Brookings Institution, it is estimated food insecurity in the U.S. has increased to as many as one in five households.
“We are a group of people who love to volunteer and help fill the need within our communities,” said Amanda Irwin, senior financial analyst and treasurer of the Greenheck Group Women’s Network. “This fundraising campaign was a way for our employees to join together and make an impact while COVID-19 social distancing guidelines are in place.” Greenheck Group team members raised money through a variety of department- and management-level challenges.
Each of the seven states in which Greenheck Group is located chose a nonprofit specific to the area. “It makes us proud to have the support of a local organization like Greenheck Group, which has been extremely philanthropic with their time and talent,” commented Donna Ambrose, executive director of The Neighbor’s Place, the organization chosen in Wisconsin.
“Our team members across the country never hesitate to join together to accomplish extraordinary things,” said Jim McIntyre, CEO, Greenheck Group.
