“Helping hands is our community service team here. For the past several months, the team prepared for the February 14 event to support the Northern Illinois Food Bank,” said Senior HR Generalist, Chelsi Festa.
The Northern Illinois Food Bank partners with 800 feeding programs across 13 counties to serve neighbors needing food. Through the IDEX Foundation Liquid Controls secured funds to purchase food that was brought on-site to pack meal bags that they would later distribute to local pantries.
“The team took pride in packing bags and stamping them with our LC logo! We had over 80% of our employees participate, and were able to pack 1200 bags of food, which amounted to nearly 5,000 meals for families in need. During the event, we collected $201 in monetary donations. Every $1 donated provides $8 worth of groceries through the food bank. Overall, it was an awesome way to give back to our community and we were able to make it happen right at our site so many employees could easily participate.”
Great work to the Liquid Controls team!
