Pointe Pest Control Volunteering for Northern Illinois Food Bank
It was all about giving back for the holidays at Pointe Pest Control. Office administrators and service technicians teamed up to volunteer at The Northern Illinois Food Bank’s warehouse in Geneva, IL. “As a company, I feel it’s imperative that we have a presence in the community we service and it’s also a privilege to provide such a vital resource to our friends and neighbors,” said Sharon Stay, Office Supervisor. “Good business is not just about making money, it’s about improving people’s lives and we strive to do that, both professionally and as a member of the community in our volunteering efforts.” Although it was a new experience for staff members, their teamwork definitely paid off. 13,515 pounds of potatoes were packed in just a few hours, which went into 11,262 packages for Thanksgiving meals in Northern Illinois. Northern Illinois Food Bank is a source of nutritious food, innovative feeding programs, and hope for more than 71,000 people each week. As a nonprofit organization with a goal of solving hunger in our 13-county service area, we rely on community partners – the local food pantries and feeding programs, food manufacturers and retailers, companies, foundations and individuals who join with us in our vision for no one to be hungry in northern Illinois.
