Convergent Accounting and Payment Processing Gives Back to Local Community
Seattle, Washington June 29, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Seattle, WA—(PRLeap - June 29, 2012) – The Convergent Accounting and Payment Processing teams recently provided community service at Northwest Harvest of Seattle as part of a team-building event. The food warehouse gladly welcomed the group into their facility, where Convergent employees teamed up with others to package and process food for the needy.
With gloves on, ear plugs in, face masks and hair nets ready, the team moved into the packing room of the warehouse, where a seemingly non-stop supply of sliced carrots poured down the chute, which were all funneled, bagged, sealed, boxed, weighed, and shipped in an efficient assembly-line format. The Convergent team packed 300 boxes, totaling 4,690 pounds of carrots, during that Thursday afternoon. The food was later shipped to shelters all over Washington, and the Northwest Harvest staff expressed a great deal of appreciation for all the willing helpers. It was also clear from the smiling faces and comments after the event that the Convergent team felt good about serving and making a difference in their community. Many are already looking forward to returning.
Northwest Harvest has been in operation for more than four decades and is the only nonprofit food bank distributor operating statewide in Washington, with warehouses in Kent, Yakima, Grays Harbor, and Spokane. Through its network of 325 food banks, the Seattle-based nonprofit organization provides more than 1.6 million meals each month in western, eastern, coastal and central Washington. Northwest Harvest reaches rural communities where people in need would otherwise go hungry. They provide food freely to anyone hungry enough to ask, respecting their dignity while serving their need. In 2011, the organization set a distribution record by dispensing more than 25 million pounds of food to the hungry.
