Alpharetta staff joined forces to donate food in support of Georgia Mountain Food Bank (GMFB), a local food pantry in Forsyth County. Georgia Mountain Food Bank’s (GMFB) mission is to address hunger, health and quality of life by serving those in need throughout North Georgia.
The Greensboro office participated in a paper bag and food drive from a distance this May. The paper bags were donated to Food Assistance NC which provides groceries to low income and disabled senior citizens through their Groceries on Wheels program. The paper bags are used to transport the groceries. In addition, employees collected food for the Out of the Garden project, which provides food to children in low income houses.
As Schnabel’s 2019 Spark Office of the Year, the Albany office is continuing to make an impact to meet the needs of their community in 2020. Albany’s Spark Champion Stephan Wise has sought out a worthy local charitable organization to benefit with their winning Spark community grant during these challenging times. Stephan identified Food Bank of the Hudson Valley as the beneficiary, and the Albany office donated $500 on behalf of Schnabel this week, joining in the effort to feed those in need and providing 2,000 meals to the community.
“We are so grateful to community partners like Schnabel Engineering for their support during these challenging times,” said Paul A. Stermer, Director of the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. “We are truly blessed to be part of a community filled with individuals and organizations who understand that we are all in this together. That’s more important than ever as we navigate through this period of unprecedented need.” Every $1 donation helps the Food Bank provide 4 meals to friends and neighbors in need.
A huge thank you to the Albany office and Spark Champion Stephan Wise for continuing the Spark mission in such a meaningful way!
On Saturday, March 14th, 2020, Schnabel recognized Albany as the inaugural Spark Office of the Year at the Schnabel University (SU) 2020 Technical Workshop in Williamsburg, VA. Throughout 2019, Spark Champions across the company reported activities, volunteer hours, participation, and donations contributed from their offices. The Spark committee reviewed all submissions to identify the office with the highest participation. As winning 2019 Spark Office of the Year, the Albany office engaged in benefiting their local community in incredible ways. Albany Spark Champion Stephan Wise took the lead in engineering fun social activities to fundraise for organizations like Ulster County SPCA, Together We Rise, and the American Heart Association. The office got down and dirty doing cleanup in coordination with the local park system for Canal Clean Sweep, donated over 150 pounds of canned food drive to Street Soldiers, and much more. For their outstanding community impact, Albany received an award and a $500 community grant from Schnabel to donate to the charity of their choice this year!
