On Monday, 451 Marketing completed another successful installment of #451Cares, a program we created as part of our ongoing commitment to giving back to the community.
This time, we joined the effort to end hunger: Six of our very own employees volunteered at Community Servings, a Massachusetts-based nonprofit that provides free, home-delivered meals to individuals and families struggling with critical and chronic illnesses.
We spent the day hard at work, assisting the Community Servings kitchen staff with their daily preparation and packaging of food. Whether cutting up meats and vegetables, working the assembly line, or packaging up desserts, we brought in 451’s endless spirit and enthusiasm for helping those in need.
Marketing Coordinator Pampan Zhang was inspired by the organization’s “…dedication to making sure 850 people don’t have to add ‘hunger’ to their list of daily struggles of living with life-threatening illnesses. Being able to work alongside the people on the forefront of the fight against hunger was definitely a highlight.”
Consumer PR Senior Account Executive Sara Pendleton “…liked being a part of actual preparation for something. The orientation in the beginning, while mildly terrifying, really helped to drive home that we were helping people that are currently unable to help themselves.”
Graphic Designer Emily Carlson’s highlights “…would absolutely be the hairnets, and of course the staff… They all work very hard and make such a difference in other people’s lives.”
Consumer PR Account Coordinator Emily De Lacoste agreed: “It is amazing what this organization does every day and how great the meals are that are being delivered. The staff working there was also great and you can see how devoted they are to the organization and helping others!”
We want to thank the Community Servings staff for letting us lend a hand in the kitchen. It was truly inspiring to learn more about the organization’s mission, and we are so happy to have had the opportunity to make a difference.
