For nearly six years, volunteers from Workday have played an integral role in our warehouse: 820 volunteers have donated more than 2,700 hours of their time.
That commitment to the Food Bank has made an enormous impact on the families we serve. Over the course of six years, Workday volunteers have sorted 210,000 pounds of fresh produce, adding up to 180,000 meals for our community.
Workday’s commitment to giving back is evident in their volunteer work. As a company, one of their values is to do more for the local communities where their “Workmates” live and work. They empower their employees to give their time and resources to causes they’re passionate about – and provide opportunities for employees to earn grants for their nonprofit partners in exchange for volunteer time.
And, that’s how they’ve partnered with us to help end hunger in Alameda County.
“Workmates love volunteering with Alameda County Community Food Bank,” said Nikki Egenolf, Giving & Doing Program Manager. “Whether they are sorting food in the warehouse alongside their teammates, donating financially, or building canned food sculptures for our annual Cangineering competition for good, our employees light up when they play an active role in supporting our neighbors. Workday looks forward to a strong volunteer partnership as we both grow to serve the Bay Area.”
We couldn’t agree more. Thank you, Workday, for your continued support as we work to reach and improve the lives of even more people.
