FIDELITONE Employees Help the Storehouse Help Those in Need
Albuquerque, New Mexico (December 9, 2015) – FIDELITONE’s Albuquerque-based employees are ending 2015 on a charitable high note. Over the past several months colleagues have mobilized to help The Storehouse help families in need throughout the Albuquerque area. From clothing drives to nonperishable food item collections to fundraising via a “Casual Friday Fund,” the team is making good on its pledge to make a difference in the community.
The Storehouse is New Mexico’s largest food pantry, serving individuals and families by providing free food and clothing. A non-profit organization, they rely solely on donations and volunteers to uphold their mission.
“In 2015, we collected 10 bags of gently used clothing items, 550 units of food and $550 in cash donations for The Storehouse,” says Barbara Hostler, long-time FIDELITONE employee and team lead for this year’s Casual Friday Fund. “With the company matching employee donations dollar for dollar, $550 becomes $1,100.” The fund, established two years ago by two local FIDELITONE warehouse operators, collects a dollar from employees who choose to wear casual attire—versus their uniform— to work on Fridays.
“FIDELITONE employees across the United States give back to their local communities in many ways,” says Joe Giglio, chief marketing officer at FIDELITONE. “We’re proud of the compassion and leadership our employees are exhibiting as well as the commitment they’re making to the Albuquerque community—a community where we conduct business. “
