Hope Not Hunger: The Clorox Company
The Clorox Company Awarded 2011 "Hope Not Hunger" Award at Annual Savor the Season Event
The Clorox Company is an Oakland native – founded in 1913, they’ve been a mainstay in the community for nearly100 years. Since 1997, more than 500 volunteers from The Clorox Company have served a total of 1,600 hours at the Food Bank – more than 200 hours in the last year alone.Through corporate sponsorships, foundation grants, employee gifts and matches, they’ve raised more than $580,000 to support our hunger relief efforts. And as vital as those things are, they haven’t stopped at sorting apples and writing checks.
Over the years, Clorox has also contributed the passion and commitment of four employees as Food Bank board members: Tarang Amin, Dan Scarola, Chip Conradi and John Kreiter, the latter three having also served as board presidents.
And through Clorox’s Diamond Leadership Institute, employees devoted time and expertise to help the Food Bank increase our capacity through improvements to our technology, supply-chain management and corporate volunteer programs.
For their commitment, The Clorox Company will be honored with this year’s 2011 Hope Not Hunger Award during
Savor the Season on Sept. 25.
Please join us in congratulating The Clorox Company for their commitment as we grow to address the ever-increasing need in our—and their—community.
