Hands-On Partner Employers, or the HOPE Program, is the food bank’s initiative to create working volunteer relationships with area businesses.
For businesses that want to be more involved with the community or tap into their corporate social responsibility, the HOPE Program is a great way to get started. We will work together with participating companies to create employee volunteer programs that fit their needs. Businesses may volunteer bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, or annually. Once a business becomes a member of the HOPE Program, it will be recognized for the contributions made to the food bank and the community.
For more information about the HOPE Program, please contact Jim Wagner, Volunteer Coordinator, at 512-392-8300 Ext. 222 or Jim Wagner.
