Staffing firm Express Employment Professionals, in conjunction with its franchise business locations in Oregon, Michigan, Washington, Arkansas, North Carolina, Minnesota, Utah, Colorado, Georgia and Wisconsin, is going to donate $75,000 to ten nonprofits. This donation is part of the brand's Impact Project, an initiative that aims to give back to nonprofits that are nominated by its franchisees.
Express Employment Professionals Board Chairman and CEO Bob Funk says the company prides itself on a culture steeped in service and giving. With that in mind, noted Funk, it's important for the brand to support its local communities and help honor the commitment its franchisees have shown to the nominated nonprofits.
The $20,000 donation grand prize winner was Kid’s Cup, a golf event that supports new infant and prenatal care in Minnesota. This fundraiser was stared by Rochester Express franchisees Mark and Sheryl Tasler and has since raised more than $1 million for the Olmsted Medical and Mayo Clinic Children’s Centers.
Another winner was the child abuse intervention organization The Children's Center in Oregon, which will receive $5,000. This center educates the public on neglect and child abuse in the area and provides services to children who need expert care and evaluation. Express Oregon City franchisee Tina Irvine nominated the charity, which her office has supported over the years.
$10,000 each will go to OUR Center in Colorado, the Racine Vocational Ministry in Wisconsin and the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition. The Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation in North Carolina, Childhaven in Washington and the Kids' Food Basket in Michigan will receive $5,000, while a donation of $2,500 has been awarded to Camp Rock of Georgia and While We're Waiting in Arkansas.
