Hello everyone, Helping to stamp out hunger and end food insecurity fits well into Slalom’s core value to Build and Shape a Better Future. Over the past five years, Slalom has enabled an incredible 3 million meals to feed the hungry in the communities in which we work and live. I am happy to announce the official start of our 6th Annual Food Drive coordinated through our network. This year the campaign is from May 22rd – June 9th. Our goal for 2017 is to raise $280,000 and beat our record last year of $246,000. In so doing, we will pass two huge milestones: it will bring our cumulative total donation of six years to well past $1 million and will be our first year of raising enough for a million meals in a single year. The Food Drive is Slalom’s largest company-wide charitable event. Every market participates, partnering with a local food bank, with the fun competitive element to see which office can raise the most per person. Last year Portland retained that honor and has hosted the traveling “Can Do” spirit trophy for the second straight year. Will they three-peat? It is up to you! Participation in this event is voluntary, but I hope you join me in the cause. Food drive leaders in your markets are coordinating further instructions and fun ways to get involved, so be on the lookout for that if you haven't seen it already. Contributions can take several forms: every office will be doing fundraising; some offices will be collecting non-perishable foods; and many will be hosting volunteer activities such as sorting foods, packing backpacks for school kids, working in soup kitchens or tending community gardens. The food drive is just one example of Slalom striving to make an impact in our communities, especially through the passion and generosity of you all. As the company grows I am continually impressed by the different ways we are creating a social impact and making a better future we can all love. Good luck to all teams competing, and here’s to a great campaign ahead! As always – thanks for all that you do. John T
