We Give. ‘Cause We Can!
As is our tradition, we kicked off the Holiday Season by doing some good. Our commitment to lending a hand and giving back to our Detroit community is part of our very own company-wide movement. We call it “Cause We Can” – because, well, we can!
Over a span of three weeks, 87 employees from the JRT agency® and CG Detroit® returned to Gleaners Community Food Bank to aid with their canned goods, fresh produce and food packaging distribution programs. Our company totaled 14 hours of philanthropic efforts to wrap up 2019.
While we were packing fresh produce, sorting non-perishable items and gathering orders for needy families, we were also providing meals for over 123,842 people. That’s a total of 112,532 pounds of food.
We appreciate Gleaners and what they do for Metro Detroit, and we’re inspired by their mission of nourishing communities by feeding those who need it most.
“As we were sorting the produce, I gave thanks that there is food on my table,” said Loretta Martinez, Senior Writer at the JRT agency. “I want my kids to enjoy that feeling of gratitude. In fact, I will be bringing them to Gleaners to volunteer after the holidays.”
When we take a step back to pay it forward, it certainly puts things in perspective. We look forward to increasing our charitable commitments in the years ahead… ’Cause We Can!
