It was a day filled with classic rock and cabbages, as Office Revolution spent the morning volunteering at the Greater Chicago Food Depository boxing up produce to the tunes of Led Zeppelin, Wham! and Kansas. We enjoyed the opportunity for us to get involved and help give back to the community, and we also got to bond with colleagues and friends while we packaged over 34,000 lbs. of produce in just a few hours!
We had teams of packers who picked the produce that passed their rigorous inspection and placed them into boxes. Who knew cabbages could be so heavy?! We also had the weighing team who ensured each box was within the weight limits for shipping purposes, and our box makers and runners who got their cardio in by running empty boxes wherever they needed to go. We filled over 1,100 boxes by the end of the morning!
The team at the Greater Chicago Food Depository truly couldn’t have been greater. They were welcoming, kind, and very helpful in answering all of our questions. We were happy to work with such an amazing group.
As we laughed and danced while we packed up our produce, we realized this will be an event that Office Revolution looks forward to continuing to do for years to come. “In keeping with our commitment to social responsibility, we are proud to support the Greater Chicago Food Depository with our volunteer efforts. Working together as a team to help others builds on our overall effort to foster a culture that all members are proud to be a part,” says Principal Owner, Dave Feder. Needless to say, Cabbage will not be on the menu for dinner tonight.
