FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Petaluma, California (October 1, 2018) — Staff members of CrossCheck and its affiliate, Optio Solutions, helped pack fresh fruit while donating their time at the Redwood Empire Food Bank on September 25. Carlos Murcia, the foodbank’s volunteer logistics coordinator, said the group sorted, weighed and packaged over 2,400 pounds of dark plums for seniors in need during the two-hour shift.
The effort represented the fifth consecutive month of staff members supporting the food bank’s weekday Warehouse Support program where they are assigned tasks such as packaging fresh produce, assembling grocery boxes, or sorting staple pantry items for distribution throughout the county.
The team was led by CrossCheck Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Chris Schumacher and Senior Vice President Charles Dortch III, the organizer of the effort.
“Our monthly volunteer nights at the food bank contribute to the local community,” said Schumacher, “and they are very rewarding for the individuals who participate.”
