Each year, CBIZ hosts an annual food drive competition between all of our 100+ offices, and for the past 3 years (3!) the Phoenix office has come out on top. Now, we don't like to brag (well, not too much), but we outdid ourselves during the 2016 food drive, raising just under $20,000 for St. Mary's Food Bank! And as the winners of the company-wide competition, our corporate office donated an additional $5,000 to St. Mary's, pushing our total to nearly $25,000. As you can imagine, we were thrilled with this outcome!
While we here in the Phoenix office were perfectly content with our hard won bragging rights, we were excited to learn that St. Mary's Food Bank was honoring CBIZ & MHM as a 2017 Hunger Hero. Deborah Kimes, Business Development Manager, and Ashley Gojic, Marketing Manager, attended the awards luncheon to accept the award on our behalf, and to hear about the incredible impact of the work St. Mary's does in our community.
"It was so inspiring to learn about the vast impact St. Mary's has on reducing hunger in Arizona. It's hard to imagine the outcomes for those in need without the assistance St. Mary's provides," said Ashley Gojic. "We are beyond proud to support St. Mary's, and look forward to strengthening our relationship with them through volunteering and continued fundraising efforts."
Many thanks to our Phoenix team members and their families for their continued efforts to help the hungry in our community!
