2014 Q2 – Second Harvest Food Bank Food Drive

XOOM Energy is committed to making a difference here in the Carolinas and is partnering once again with the Second Harvest Food Bank to host our 3rd Annual Food Drive. For two weeks during the month of June (June 16th – June 27th) XOOM Energy collected food and grocery items for children, families and seniors currently in need. In the spirit of friendly competition, the XOOM employees were divided into five teams, each one led by a member of the Executive Committee. The teams including team “Shock and Awe”, “Captain Crunch and the Cereal Killers”, “No Margarine for Error” and “Feeding Frenzy” competed over the two – week period to see which could make the largest donation to Second Harvest. In addition to staff donations, XOOM Energy team members also volunteered their time at the Second Harvest sorted and examining donated food items. XOOM is proud to have made an overall donation of 4,812 pounds to the Second Harvest Food Bank. Plans for the 2015 partnership are already underway; XOOM will continue supporting the largest hunger relief charity in the area in their mission to supply a network of over 600 non – profit agencies across 19 counties with food and essential grocery products.
