A Company Picnic with a Cause

The St. Louis Area Foodbank is currently the Bi-State region’s largest non-profit 501 (c) 3 food distribution center, and always in need of donations to help keep their shelves stocked.

June2010-FoodDriveWe were able to incorporate a little philanthropic activity during the NetEffects’ company picnic.

The St. Louis Area Foodbank was kind enough to bring a donation barrel to Castlewood State Park to collect all the canned goods and monetary donations that Neteffects’ picnic goers were generous enough to bring!

Overall we were able to collect enough food and donations for 144 meals!

Recently, a study conducted by St. Louis Area Foodbank and Feeding America found that over 261,000 people in the metro area, including 101,790 children, are provided food each year by the St. Louis Area Foodbank.

Neteffects’ is glad that our contributions helped to make sure citizens in need didn’t have to go without.
