Weber Thompson’s participation in the 2016 Food Frenzy competition came to end last Friday in a sweet and delectable fashion. On Monday, July 18th, the office held a bake sale in the lobby and last Friday, July 22nd, the fun concluded with an ice cream social in the office. The Weber Thompson team participated by bringing in homemade baked goods, desserts from local businesses and by purchasing “build your own” ice cream sundaes with unlimited toppings.
In addition to the bake sale and ice cream social, this year’s Food Frenzy events included an afternoon volunteering with Food Lifeline, and a carnival themed office happy hour. The Food Frenzy competition engages employees of local companies to raise funds, volunteer and collect food donations. With the participation of Weber Thompson employees and online donors through our Facebook page, we were able to raise over $2,000. In total, the competition generated over $700,000 for Food Lifeline. Each dollar donated to Food Lifeline provides 5 healthy meals, which means Food Frenzy participants efforts translate to over 3.5 million healthy meals for people in need in our region!
The events helped take a step in the right direction toward helping to end hunger in our community, but the efforts don’t have to end now. You can visit the Food Lifeline website to donate, volunteer and learn other ways that you can help end hunger.
