UMS Banking CANS Their President!

Our partners at UMS Banking decided it was time to can their President, Jim Harris!

CAN the CEO is one of our signature food drives and a great team building activity that helps raise awareness about hunger in the United States. UMS Banking’s employees were challenged to fill Harris’s office with so many boxes of non-perishable food donations that he wouldn’t be able get back inside it!

The team filled 15 boxes with 450 lbs. of food – that’s enough to provide 375 meals! Our friends at Real RocknRoll Movers volunteered to pick up all of the donations and delivered them to the Glendale Community Center.

More than 4 million Californians are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children. We would like to thank Lea Terzian from UMS Banking for organizing this food drive, to the team at REAL RocknRoll Movers for their assistance, and to everyone who made a donation. Finally, a big thank you to CEO Jim Harris for being such a good sport. We couldn’t have done it without all you!

Does your CEO deserve to be CANNED? We’d love to help!
