Petaluma, Calif. (Feb. 26, 2019) — Employees of CrossCheck and its affiliate, Optio Solutions, have reached 10 consecutive months of volunteer work at the Redwood Empire Food Bank. The latest participation in the food bank’s weekday Warehouse Support program was Feb. 21. REFB representative Caty Priebe said the staff members helped package 4,800 pounds of fresh oranges, representing 5,760 meals for seniors in need.
