The Power to Give: Thriving Titans Food Pantry Backpack Program
At PowerTech, giving back extends well beyond our office walls. Community investment to us is more than contributing money to charitable organizations. It’s about rolling up our sleeves and giving our all to directly helping people in need.
The Power to Give – the charitable arm of our company – is working to make a meaningful difference by serving others. On Saturday, Jan. 16, a team of PowerTech employees provided food and packed 425 backpacks for Thriving Titans, a Council Bluffs food pantry that fights child hunger by providing meals and personal care items to families in need across the Lewis Central School District, including Titan Hill and Kreft elementary schools.
It’s an important cause, and one that should never be overlooked. Food banks across the country – including in Iowa – are struggling to meet growing demand, especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Feeding America, more than 305,000 people in Iowa are struggling with hunger. Of those, at least 102,000 are children.
The Thriving Titans backpack program provides meals to kids on the weekends to make sure they are getting enough nutrition when they’re not at school. The Power to Give provided all of the food for the bags, and 12 of our employees and three kids stuffed the backpacks full. As it turned out, we well exceeded our goal of filling 400 backpacks – and we did it in just 42 minutes.
That’s just how we are at The Power to Give. At PowerTech, our employees operate quickly, efficiently, and as a team. Their energy is high, with a positive attitude and a success mindset.
Even though The Power to Give has only recently started its charitable giving efforts, we’re already making an impact by approaching our causes with the same commitment and focus we have in our business. Our ultimate goal is to make The Power to Give an entity of its own, with the ability to improve our community for years to come.
Let’s all do our part to help our community better. Together, we can make a difference.
