Express Employment Professionals, an internationally franchised staffing company, is setting aside a day of volunteerism known as “Brand It Blue Day.”

On Saturday, June 10, Express Employment Professionals offices from California to North Carolina to Canada will join together at local food banks and pantries to help fight hunger—a growing epidemic that impacts millions of people in the U.S., Canada and around the world every day.

Brand It Blue Day is a day for local Express teams to come together for a great cause to help in their local communities,” said Amy Velez, Owner of the Gonzales Express office. “This is a chance for Express offices to honor the communities that have supported them through the years by giving back.”

Through June 9th, Express will host a food drive at its office, located at 915 S Nickens Avenue in Gonzales, where you can drop off non-perishable food items. Express team members will also pick up donations from local businesses who wish to participate. On June 10th, volunteers will host a final collection day and gather the food to donate to pantries that serve the River Parishes. Local community members and businesses are asked to make a contribution, large or small, to help support this initiative – each and every can or box of food helps.

The summertime is an especially difficult season for children who depend on the meals they receive at school,” Velez said. “The donations we receive will help provide meals for children and their families in our community.”

This is the fifth year that Express has held Brand It Blue Day. During that time, more than 235 Express offices and community volunteers have donated their time and resources to provide more than 300,000 meals to local food banks and charitable organizations.
