Volunteering at the Oregon Food Bank has become one of our favorite Ruby traditions. For the past five years, Rubys have gathered around Thanksgiving to package food for families in need, and last night, almost half of our virtual receptionists and staff chose to spend their evening giving back to our local community!
Even before our arrival, the team was busy collecting donations for our food drive. We were able to pack our IT Director Keith’s truck full of nonperishable goods and ended up donating roughly 600 pounds of food this year thanks to the generosity of our team! After we dropped off the donations, we all suited up in hairnets and aprons and got to work packaging red beans. In just a few short, dance-party-filled hours, we were able to put together over 7,000 meals for needy families in our community!
The Oregon Food Bank is a cause close to our hearts, and we are thankful for all they do to fight hunger!
