Employees across our company participated in Meduit’s Mighty Give-Back campaign for 2023, collecting 7 tons of food and other items to be donated to charitable organizations. This achievement represents more than 150% of our overall company goal.
To put this in perspective, 7 tons of food will feed 3,040 families of four (over 12,000 people), and would fill a standard semi-trailer, making an incredible difference in helping to overcome food insecurity in our communities.
Meduit Give-Back 2023 was originally scheduled to run from June 5 to July 7, but since there was such great momentum, Meduit extended the program until July 21. Ten Meduit teams competed to collect the most food and other charitable items. The top achievers are:
- Food Fighters, led by Steve Villa, collected 1,444.83 pounds of food – the highest ranking of pounds of food per employee (21 total team members) – along with the most donated items per employee.
- EBO Excellence, led by Jason Bauerschmidt and Mark Shabason, collected 4,836.28 pounds of food, marking the highest in overall pounds and items contributed.
- Andrea Newman, with 832 total donations, topping most pounds of food and items from an individual
Across the initiative, Meduit averaged 8.5 items collected per employee. In addition, our management team competed in a “virtual game” of Meduit Leadership Jeopardy for a bonus donation for their team. Eric Coats was victorious and walked away with 560 pounds of additional food in honor of the Blazing Bad Debt team. Several Meduit employees earned raffle tickets and will receive an invitation to the upcoming Awards Presentation and raffle drawings.
Congratulations to all, and thank you for your hard work and dedication to helping those who need us most. Meduit is honored to give back to the communities where we live and work!
