There’s no better way to ring in the new year than by inspiring others to give. As a local company, RFPIO understands the importance of community. Now they are paying it forward in a different way. To kick off 2017, the RFPIO team is giving back to our amazing community with a Q1 initiative…

roi of compassion

 

RFPIO has talked a lot about ROI in the business world, focusing on what the ultimate reward will be for the effort we put in. The “ROI of Compassion” puts a little twist on the concept we know well, by channeling the return back into the community for the generosity we invest.

As Salesforce partners, RFPIO works with Pledge 1% to participate in the culture of giving. Though it was challenging to pick just one cause—as there are so many important causes in need of resources—the RFPIO team has decided to pledge their 1% community involvement to the Oregon Food Bank.

Did you know that January is one of the most challenging times for food banks? Giving drops significantly after the holidays—so let’s change that by bringing some warmth and cheer to the people that need it this time of year.

Oregon Food Bank takes a holistic approach to ending hunger by bringing our community together to provide food, education and hope to our neighbors in need.

Last year, the Oregon Food Bank Network distributed more than 1 million emergency food boxes to people facing hunger throughout Oregon and Clark County, Washington. On a monthly basis, Oregon Food Bank helps 1 in 5 households struggling with hunger.

It’s time to add value back into our community with a little time and kindness. We hope you’ll join RFPIO’s culture of giving through mid-February, so they can make a bigger impact on Oregon Food Bank’s needs.
