So far in 2021, our employees have helped us donate nearly $100,000 to charities and organizations across the country. Through fundraising and volunteering, they’ve supported various causes, from breast cancer research funding to helping individuals overcome food scarcity. Their desire to get involved in their community has made it possible for EquipmentShare to give back to meaningful causes and lend a hand to our neighbors who need it most. We’re excited to announce that our team’s dedication earned EquipmentShare the Columbia Missourian Progress Award for Corporate Citizenship. We’ve accomplished a lot in 2021, but the Missourian Progress Award is a special achievement to us.
“We wouldn’t have received this award without the help of our team members,” our CEO Jabbok Schlacks said. “They’re the ones who drive our giving back efforts. They see a need in the community and drop everything to address it. Our employees are the ones who started our No Child Hungry program that provided over 140,000 meals to kids and families in the area throughout the pandemic. We’re grateful for their giving spirit and for this recognition.”
