Employees Giving Back in Local, Monthly Volunteer Efforts

By | August 9, 2017

Bariatric Choice is proud to be a brand with a greater purpose, giving support to causes we truly believe in. As a result, we’re partnering with Feeding America® and our WonderSlim® brand of products to help those in need. We’re committed, as a company, to helping restore hope to the over 42 million Americans who struggle with hunger. This includes the more than 35,000 going hungry in New Hanover County, NC, where we’re located.

We have a year-long campaign goal to provide 2 meals* through Feeding America for every box of WonderSlim purchased, setting a minimum target of 1.3 million meals*. Most importantly, we’re creating new volunteer opportunities for our team to make a direct impact in our own community.  This is why our employees will now give their time and efforts each month at a local, Feeding America-affiliated food bank.

Employee Volunteer Night at the Food Bank of Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC

The first volunteering event of this new, monthly initiative was a giant success. We had incredible employee turnout and everyone felt like they were making a real impact in the community. Our team members helped with sorting and loading donations at our local Wilmington Food Bank branch. These efforts ultimately deliver people essential pack bags or box lunches for schoolchildren. It was an incredible experience working into the evening to support a great cause to help those in need where we live and work.

As a company, we’re extremely proud of our employees’ engagement within the community and look forward to the next monthly service event.
