Partnering With What Matters
August 28, 2017
Packing good food… fast! Our partnership with the nonprofit organization Matter had Egan employees going head-to-head in a friendly competition to beat hunger. Egan volunteers were split into eight teams each was determined to pack the most boxes of food over the two hour period.
To keep things interesting, teams had to abide by the ever-changing packing tactics like using only one hand or standing on one foot. The Blue Team took home the win for most boxes packed, while the White Team won the “Spirit Award”. However, the most important victory of the day came from the 4,113 GoFuel packs of food that filled the boxes for local children in need.
Matter is a nonprofit on a mission to expand access to healthy food in our community. The concept behind the MATTERbox is simple: a box of healthy, shelf-stable meals and nutrition education, helping children of all ages take their first steps towards a healthier life. Thank you Matter for driving such a great call to action!
