Express Employment Professionals Partners with Food Share of Ventura County
Ventura County, CALIF., Apr 27th, 2020 – In normal times, 1 in 6 Ventura County residents struggle with food insecurity. Due to Covid-19, thousands more people in our community are facing real hunger. Increasing unemployment rates and school closures have intensified pressure on non-profit organizations such as Food Share.
That's why Express Employment Professionals has teamed up with Food Share during this critical time – with a customized landing page to generate and track donations. The need today is monetary so that Food Share can purchase additional food to meet increased demand. Food Share Executives estimate they will need $2.5 Million in donations just to get through June 2020 (including the recent Ventura County Tax Dollar Aid).
Express Pros has coordinated with Food Share for many years. They’ve hosted food drives generating thousands of pounds of non-perishable food items. In addition, they have held team building exercises on-site at Food Share to sort food for those in need.
Neil McMillan, President of the Ventura County Express offices, “We know that the community is experiencing many challenges and changes to day-to-day life; Food Share is an important organization for what they do for our community day in and day out. In these extraordinary times we thought of them and wanted to help them in their outreach.”
Donations to Food Share can be made by visiting www.foodshare.com/express OR by Texting EXPRESS to 41444.
