NB+C Corporate Office Volunteers at the Maryland Food Bank
Baltimore, MD: NB+C employees based out of the corporate headquarters volunteered at the Maryland Food Bank on Friday, September 23 and Monday, September 26.
The office selected The Maryland Food Bank as its 2016 Charity of Choice and the team was thrilled to be able to make an impact during the volunteer shifts.
Employees sorted and packed boxes of food donations to be distributed to the Food Bank’s various partners, including soup kitchens, school pantries and homeless shelters. During the course of their two shifts, NB+C employees sorted over 43,000 pounds of food representing 36,000 meals distributed to those in need!
“In a time where our need is at an all-time high, volunteer sessions are critical to our organization,” said Nancy Smith, Senior Director of Government Relations and Principal Gifts at MD Food Bank. “The upcoming holiday season is starting NOW and sorting out 36,000 meals is a huge help to us. It also says something about the company philosophy on giving back and getting the employees involved. A big thank you to NB+C!”
NB+C has also signed on as a corporate sponsor for the MD Food Bank’s upcoming Kids Helping Kids initiative, making a cash donation to support this program, which provides meals to food-insecure students.
