Not surprisingly, we get numerous requests from worthwhile organizations asking us to partner with them on pro bono projects. For obvious reasons, we cannot accept all of the requests being made so we have to be selective with the partners we choose. Every once in a while, an organization rises above the others. The For GOOD Foundation is one of those organizations. Its mission statement and vision to help alleviate hunger, and to address the issue of food waste in our society, made an immediate impression with us. It is a pleasure to be part of the team and to contribute our services in a small way towards this very important project.
There’s never been a time when doing meaningful things matter as much as today. The For GOOD Foundation has developed a very unique solution to an unfortunately common problem. It’s exactly the type of passion project our team wanted to get behind.
