At smartdept. inc., one of our top priorities is finding ways to give back to the communities where we live and work. In July of this year, we hosted a fundraising event in Seattle in support of one of our favorite local charities, Food Lifeline, a group that serves a staggering 82,000 meals a day to individuals and families in need in the Western Washington area.
We raised $1,222.50 and won the much coveted “Rookie of the Year” award from Food Lifeline! Although our company is smaller than others that participated in Food Lifeline’s “Food Frenzy” fundraising extravaganza, we managed to take first place per capita. Needless to say, we’re ecstatic!
And it’s all because of you.
A heartfelt thanks to our clients, candidates, family, and friends for your generous donations to provide a necessary service in our community. We’re so grateful for your participation in our open house, and hope you walk away knowing that your contributions went towards the overall $540,000 Food Lifeline was able to raise, which in turn will provide over 2.1 million meals to people in need.
