19 Sep Fleet Response Helps Raise Funds and Awareness for Autism Speaks & Food Bank
Cleveland, Ohio, September 19, 2016 — In addition to year-round philanthropic activities, Fleet Response employees participate in an annual targeted fundraising campaign. This year’s campaign raised over $3,000 in support of Cleveland Autism Speaks and brought in over 30 bags of donated groceries to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
Each annual fundraising campaign includes a variety of fun fundraising activities along with participation in a charitable walk. This year’s activities included gift basket raffles, a “Pick the Missing Piece” puzzle game, and a non-perishable food drive. Food drive donations helped contribute to a community food distribution center, which provides food and other critical grocery products annually to more than 800 local food pantries, hot meal programs, shelters, mobile pantries, and other nonprofit agencies. On September 11th nearly 100 Fleet Response employees, family members and friends gathered to participate in the 10th Annual Cleveland Autism Speaks Walk near Fleet Response’s headquarters in Cleveland, OH.
“Charitable giving plays an important role in our company culture, promoting well balanced healthy lifestyles,” said Allison Lanzilotta, Executive Vice President. “I’m incredibly proud of our employees for the energy and creativity put towards making this year’s fundraising campaign such a success.”
