OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (PRWEB) March 22, 2016 - Express Employment Professionals, along with its franchise locations in Arkansas, Georgia, Michigan, Oregon, Washington, North Carolina, Colorado, Wisconsin, Utah and Minnesota, is donating $75,000 to 10 nonprofits.

The donation is part of The Impact Project, an initiative of the company’s philanthropic committee designed to give back to nonprofits nominated by franchisees among their more than 760 franchise locations.

“We pride ourselves on having a culture built on giving and service at Express,” said Bob Funk, CEO and chairman of the board of Express Employment Professionals. “With that in mind, we know how important it is to support the communities where we work, serve and live. The commitment that these franchisees have shown to these organizations is a great example of that support.”
