Petaluma, California (July 30, 2018) — Eleven employees from Optio Solutions and its parent company, CrossCheck, worked an all-volunteer assembly line packing 243 grocery boxes for seniors in need at the Redwood Empire Food Bank on July 23.
CrossCheck’s Senior Vice President Charles Dortch III organized the 7,200-pound effort to support the food bank’s weekday Warehouse Support program where volunteers aggregate and package fresh produce, assemble grocery boxes, and sort donated staple pantry items for distribution throughout the county.
The Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) is the largest hunger-relief organization serving north coastal California from Sonoma County to the Oregon border. Since 1987, the REFB has provided food and nourishment to those facing hunger, currently serving 82,000 children, families and seniors in Sonoma County, while striving to end hunger in our community.
“We are extremely proud of our staff members who are making a difference in the community,” said Optio President and CEO Chris Schumacher. “This is the third consecutive month that employees have gathered for an evening of meaningful work at the Redwood Empire Food Bank.”
Evening Warehouse Support shifts are scheduled Monday through Thursday from 5 – 7 pm, but a variety of other volunteer opportunities are offered throughout the week (see the REFB Volunteer page for days and times.)
