Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) June 04, 2014 - 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 14, 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 of Express Employment Professionals. "It's a chance for Express offices to honor the communities that have supported us through the years by giving back. And, because Brand It Blue Day takes place on Father's Day weekend, we feel it's a great opportunity for families to enjoy the importance of volunteering together."
Nationwide, more than 200 Express Employment Professionals offices in 39 states along with several offices in Canada will participate in Brand It Blue Day. More than 2,500 volunteers across North America are expected to turn out for the day of service. To find a participating office, visit ExpressPros.com/BrandItBlue.
