Express Employment Professionals Offices Nationwide Unite to Help Fight Hunger; Sponsors Brand It Blue Day, June 8

OKLAHOMA CITY, - June 5, 2013 // PRNewswire // - A company built on hope and known for helping as many people as possible find good jobs, Express Employment Professionals is on a mission to put a million people to work annually.

And while the largest privately-held staffing company in North America is busy matching job seekers with employers, the company is also setting aside a day of volunteerism known as "Brand It Blue Day."

On Saturday, June 8, Express Employment Professionals offices from California to North Carolina to Canada will join together at local food banks and pantries across North America 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 will be an amazing day of service where our franchise locations can come together for one great cause to help the community," said Bob Funk , CEO and chairman of the board for Express Employment Professionals. "In celebration of the company's 30th anniversary, Brand It Blue Day is a chance for Express offices to honor the communities that have supported us through the years by giving back."

Express franchise owner Mike Hefner , in Indianapolis, has teamed up with the local Softball Lassie League to help fill a Living Bread Food Pantry truck full of necessary items. Another office trying to reach their goal of filling a pick-up truck full of non-perishable food items is in Rocky Mount, N.C., where the local Express representatives are donating to the Christian Fellowship Homes Food Pantry. In Redding, Calif. Express has teamed up with The Good News Rescue Mission to donate necessary food items to feed the hungry. On the other side of the country, Express in Warwick, R.I. has teamed up with the Rhode Island Community Food Bank and has already collected more than 37 Express tote bags and 24 boxes full of food. Due to the success of the Brand It Blue campaign in the greater Providence area, the local Warwick office has extended the food drive through the summer. Another successful campaign is taking place in the South Bend and Elkhart, Ind. areas where local Express offices are working with the community to donate food items to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.

Nationwide, 187 Express Employment Professionals offices in 37 states along with five offices in Ontario will participate in Brand It Blue Day. Nearly 4,400 volunteers across North America are expected to turn out for the day of service. To find a participating office visit
