Food and Funds Drive


HEI's Fargo office held a month-long Food and Funds Drive to support the Great Plains Food Bank. To make it a fun competition, the office was split into three teams (Blue, Red, and Green) and the team that donated the most items would win a pizza party on December 14.

Great Plains Food Drive HEI Donations
Bins were setup in the front lobby showcasing each team's donations. Employees could donate items such as non-perishable food or paper products, or they could donate money to help their team. In addition to the team prize, for every 5 items or $5 an employee donated, they would receive a ticket to be entered into a drawing for a $50 Best Buy gift card.

Our employees battled it out and ended up with an impressive display of items when the contest ended. It was a close call between Team Green and Team Blue, but Team Blue was victorious by donating a large amount of items during the final 30 minutes (left bin pictured above). Jayne Olson won the $50 Best Buy gift card from the random drawing.

In addition to all the donated items, HEI raised $700 for the Great Plains Food Bank. Thanks to all our employees for participating in this fun and rewarding community contribution.
