Express Employment Professionals coordinates city wide food and personal care items drive for Brand it Blue Initiative.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., July 12, 2019— In a less than a month Express Employment Professionals will kick off their annual city-wide Brand it Blue Initiative to support Family Network of Wyoming.
Express Employment Professionals of Grand Rapids has partnered with Family Network or Wyoming for Brand it Blue 2019. From July 29 until August 22, they are collecting personal care items for members of our community that need them most.
Family Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to nourishment for a stronger community by providing a food pantry, durable medical equipment, and other services. They have been serving the city of Wyoming and its surrounding communities since 2004 through their commitment to feeding and aiding those in need.
Every year, the Grand Rapids Express Employment Professionals office partners with local companies to host a needs drive for a local non-profit organization. Previous years have supported: Mel Trotter Ministries, Kids’ Food Basket, Family Promise of Grand Rapids and other organizations.
Express Employment Professionals will host a collection site at their office and is looking for other companies to join the initiative and get involved. So far over 15 companies have signed up to participate in the city-wide drive, which begins the week of July 29.
The Brand It Blue Initiative was born out of a desire to serve and partner with a variety of nonprofit organizations in more than 800 Express locations in the United States, Canada, and South Africa. As part of the mission of Express Employment Professionals, our franchises help connect qualified job seekers with reputable companies, but also go above and beyond to provide hope to their communities.
In recent years, franchise offices partnered with local food banks to help end chronic hunger. Between 2013 – 2018, Express staff, associates, clients, friends, and family provided nearly 600,000 meals through food drives, monetary collections, and volunteer hours served!
