The Partners Group employees* are helping to package food that is distributed around the state of Washington.

As part of The Partners Group holiday volunteering program, every employee is given a day off to spend time volunteering for their non-profit of choice. These employees volunteered at Northwest Harvest packaging oats into bags, sealing the bags, then boxing them up for shipping. The Partners Group employees packaged 4,350 pounds of oats, which equals 3,346 meals that were sent out for those in the state who need assistance.

Northwest Harvest is Washington’s own statewide hunger relief agency. Their mission is to provide nutritious food to hungry people statewide in a manner that respects their dignity, while fighting to eliminate hunger. Northwest Harvest’s hunger relief network consists of more than 380 food banks, meal programs and high-need schools.

*The Partners Group employees who volunteered at Northwest Harvest: Gus Kiss, Janet Nau, Scott Handler, Laura Dykshoorn, Ryan Stewart, Christine Morgan, Venessa Balow, Mike Arnold, Aurora Williams, Linda Sebeck, Tina Am, Kierstan Alex, and Bill Baldwin.
