Continuing its long tradition of giving back to the local community, The PrideStaff Companies, a nationally franchised staffing organization, conducted a tremendously successful canned food drive at its Home Office supporting the Fresno Mission.
Originally founded in 1949 as The Fresno Rescue Mission, the rebranded Fresno Mission has several locations used for ministry purposes, changing the lives of men, women, and children in need. Fresno Mission feeds approximately 2,000 people a day and provides clothing, education, counseling, housing, childcare, and more for those in Fresno County in need of help, including homeless, incarcerated, drug- and alcohol-dependent, impoverished, transient, and displaced individuals and families.
The PrideStaff Companies collected 1,124 items for the Fresno Mission, weighing in at 1,211 pounds of food, which will nourish the guests of the Fresno Mission’s Dakota Street and G Street locations. This generous donation from The PrideStaff Companies is among the top ten largest food contributions Fresno Mission has ever received—and is a credit to the compassion of The PrideStaff Companies employees, associates, and clients.
Tammi Heaton and Mike Aprile, The PrideStaff Companies Co-CEOs, are thrilled with the bountiful response to their Home Office’s food drive. “Mike and I would like to recognize the Accounts Payable Department for leading this year’s canned food drive benefiting the Fresno Mission,” stated Heaton. “Fresno Mission’s work addresses some of the city’s biggest challenges—and significantly impacts the lives of those who need help in our community.
“Last week, Mike and I toured the incredible Fresno Mission City Center, a shared campus that brings together more than twenty organizations focused on meeting people’s emergency needs,” continued Heaton. “We were proud to learn that our canned goods contribution is among the top ten highest contributions the Fresno Mission has ever received. We’re grateful to each and every member of The PrideStaff Companies community who donated to this worthy cause.”
