As featured yesterday on the national CBIZ blog, the 5th annual national CBIZ food drive has begun! We are proud to be a part of this incredible company-wide competition which has raised more than 2 million pounds of food over the last four years.
This year's national theme is "Heroes Against Hunger," and we have come up with our own take on that idea.
This morning we kicked-off our local food drive with a special breakfast. A representative from the Mid-South Food Bank discussed our local needs and fundraising plans. The King himself presented the 2013 CBIZ MHM Memphis Food Drive theme, "Ladies & Gentlemen, Hunger Has Left the Building."
Elvis is most certainly a hero to Memphians (his signature look even includes a cape), and we're excited to incorporate him into our local office theme! Employees bought their way into this morning's event by bringing some of Elvis' favorite foods:
Peanut Butter (Skippy was the King's preference, but all brands accepted)
Pinto Beans & Jiffy Cornbread Mix (Elvis loved beans and skillet cornbread)
Apple Pie Filling (His favorite dessert was deep dish apple pie)
The CBIZ National Food Drive runs through November 15th. Stay tuned for more information and pictures from our efforts in the Memphis office!
