Minneapolis, MN. (April 21, 2015) — WAND Corporation, the global leader in restaurant technology, recently held a food and donation drive for PROP (People Reaching Out to People) generating more than 1,300 pounds of food to donate and $600+ in donations.
“PROP is an awesome organization,” says Dave Perrill, President of WAND. “We’ve been partnering with them for the last 3 years in their mission to support their neighbors in need. 2015’s food drive was pretty spectacular with our teams of WAND Rock Stars competing to donate the most food. We literally had employees sprinting into the building the last 30 seconds before the competition closed with bags of food. It was a ton of fun!”
For the 2015 PROP food drive WAND took things to a new level by splitting its 100 employee organization into department teams. Each team loaded up their donation boxes with as many consumables as they could and passed around envelopes to collect donations. It was a close race but WAND’s uber-competitive combined team of creative services and software development edged ahead on the last day to win the competition.
“At WAND we believe you get back what you put in, so social responsibility is a priority here,” says Michele Anderson, Director of Human Resources at WAND. “It’s part of what makes up our Rock Star community and what makes us a Best Places to Work. Employees feel good when they’re part of something bigger than themselves.”
In addition to its work with PROP WAND makes additional charitable donations throughout the year and has been collecting toys for Toys For Tots for the last several years.
