Vizo Financial raises $1,750 for local food banks through meals around the corporate initiative
GREENSBORO, NC (March 2, 2021) —
It was a labor of love, food and Twitter photos as Vizo Financial held their Meals Around the Corporate fundraiser to benefit local food banks. The first community event of the year for the Corporate, Meals Around the Corporate was supported by more than 70 of Vizo Financial’s staff members and raised a grand total of $1,750, which was donated to four food banks: Central Pennsylvania Food Bank (Harrisburg, Pa.), Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank (Pittsburgh, Pa.), Harvest Hope Food Bank (Columbia, S.C.) and Second Harvest Food Bank (Winston-Salem, N.C.).
The cooking challenge ran from January 12 – February 15, 2021. Over those four weeks, staff were encouraged to get in the kitchen and prepare a meal, then share a picture to be posted on Twitter. For every picture received, the Corporate donated $10 toward that specific campus’ food bank.
“With the pandemic creating a massive need for food banks in our communities over the past year, we knew – without question – that we wanted to bring money and awareness to those organizations we support locally,” said Erin Doan, administration and community relations director for Vizo Financial. “Meals Around the Corporate was a fun and family-friendly way to bring our staff together (even in a socially distanced world) to highlight the food banks and give them additional funds to continue doing the good work they do for those struggling during this time.”
