Petaluma, Calif. (December 20, 2016) — Optio Solutions, an accounts receivable management firm, generated its latest installment of holiday giving by participating in the Salvation Army Angel Tree program and the Annual Food & Funds Drive for the Redwood Empire Food Bank. Employees placed dozens of Christmas presents under the Angel Tree and donated enough food items to overfill three large barrels.
As a corporate sponsor of a Salvation Army Angel Tree, Optio invited employee to fulfill one of the suggested gift requests by selecting a tag from the Angel Tree and purchasing the item.
Each Christmas, the Salvation Army of Petaluma provides gifts to hundreds of children in need through the efforts of this program. Low income families with children ages 0-17 are invited to register for gifts.
The Redwood Empire Food Bank’s Annual Food & Funds Drive runs November 1, 2016 through January 31, 2017, enabling thousands of Sonoma County businesses, schools, community centers, organizations and individuals to help the one in six Sonoma County residents struggling with hunger.
“Holiday giving comes natural to the Optio staff, beginning with the COTS Thanksgiving Day turkey drive, all the way through the Salvation Army Angel Tree program and the Redwood Empire Food Bank’s Annual Food & Funds Drive,” said President and CEO Chris Schumacher.
Earlier this year, Optio employees participate in annual philanthropic programs for the Alzheimer’s Association, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross and Dallas Fallen Officers Fund.
