An enterprise-wide event, Unum’s Cash & Cans food drive took place from March 14-22 and engaged employees from Portland, Maine, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Columbia, South Carolina, Worcester, Massachusetts, Glendale, California and the UK and Ireland.
The weeklong drive raised more than $65,000 in corporate and individual employee donations and enough food for more than 350,000 meals. Culminating on March 22 with a final push for contributions, the event brought employees from every area of the company (cheered on by members of the senior leadership team) together to help those in need.
The food drive is representative of a company culture focused on collaboration and volunteerism. Although Unum employees work in campuses across the country (and globe), they are united by a commitment to improving the communities they call home. Many Unum employees volunteer year round for local organizations. Large events like the food drive show what is possible when we combine all of these dedicated people and work together for a single cause.
