May the Force Be With You in the “Hunger Wars”

It is that time of the year again for the CBIZ National Food Drive.  In the spirit of the Star Wars Saga, the theme for this year’s food drive was:  HUNGER WARS:  EPISODE 2015.  The food drive ran nationally from November 2-13. CBIZ MHM Tampa Bay donated all collections this year to St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen of Upper Pinellas.

The company-wide goal was to collect 700,000 pounds of food and the challenge for each office was to increase their total by at least 10% over last year.  The Tampa Bay office of CBIZ & MHM exceeded our goal of last year’s total by 23%, with a grand total of 31,812 pounds collected!  $6,252 in monetary donations and 552 pounds of food items will be donated to the SVDP Soup Kitchen this year.

The food drive kicked off with a company-wide breakfast for a minimum donation.  There was also a bake sale silent auction and fundraising luncheon as other donation opportunities.

Thank you to all for rebelling against the “Hunger Wars” and doing our part to make sure no child, senior or family in our community goes hungry this holiday season.
