VIATEC’s generosity weighed in at more than 3,240 pounds this year — double the amount of food they raised for the Mustard Seed last holiday season.
It’s a record for the VIATEC Foundation Food Bank Challenge, which also saw $45,224.40 donated between 18 CRD-based companies.
“The participants got creative with their fundraising this year; There were wine raffles, bake sales, pancake breakfasts, chili cook-offs, office parties, plenty of interoffice competition and even a push-up competition between two companies,” VIATEC CEO, Dan Gunn, said in a press release.
“They’ve been digging deep, having fun and making a difference as part of the VIATEC Foundation Food Bank Challenge for over a decade and it’s because of them that many families will have food on the table this holiday season, and throughout the year.”
The challenge has brought in more than $2.25 million for Mustard Seed since 2002.
