Warming Hearts: Warmup Focuses on the Connecticut Food Bank
Danbury, Conn. -- Corporate Social Responsibility describes efforts made by companies to improve our society. By embracing social responsibilities in the workplace, companies can inspire and empower their employees in new ways. Warmup believes in giving back to the community, and is proud to announce a partnership with the Connecticut Food Bank. In September, Warmup made a commitment to have employees volunteer at the Connecticut Food Bank every month. Since this time, the Warmup team has donated goods as well as hundreds of hours of service to the organization’s main distribution center in Wallingford, Conn.
Warmup has joined forces with the Connecticut Food Bank to help fight hunger in the state of Connecticut where 1 in 8 people struggle with hunger. Warmup employees are encouraged to participate in open volunteer sessions at the Connecticut Food Bank the first Thursday of each month. Willing individuals rotate attendance to participate in a volunteer session, sorting food for neighbors in need instead of spending time in the office. Food sorted by volunteers is regularly distributed across the state through a network of community-based programs.
The Connecticut Food Bank is the largest source of emergency food in Connecticut. Last year the Connecticut Food Bank distributed enough food to prepare more than 21 million meals to people in need. Through mission-driven programs, the Connecticut Food Bank is able to reach the nearly half a million Connecticut residents that struggle with hunger across the state.
