Flagship donates over 60,400 meals to local food banks

Flagship held its third Annual Virtual Food Drive in Q4 2023 to support Feeding America. Associates in our three office locations participated and competed virtually to see which office could raise the most donations. As a company, Flagship recognizes the importance of community support, especially during times of need. The virtual nature of the food drive has allowed each office to actively support their food banks in a hybrid and remote work environment.

To further support the community, the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) offered additional financial contributions to the food banks that received the highest donations from our offices. The office that generated the most donations was awarded bragging rights and a $5,000 prize from the ELT for their local food bank. The second-place office’s local food bank received $3,000 and the third-place team’s local food bank received $1,000.

This year, the Company is excited to announce that the Coppell, TX associates exceeded their goal and claimed first place by donating 40,837 pounds of food, leading them to win the $5,000 corporate donation for a total donation of $9,075 for the North Texas Food Bank. The North Texas Food Bank attributes three meals to every dollar raised, representing 27,225 meals to support community members. Associates in the Chadds Ford office supported the Food Bank of Delaware, raising $2,034 and earning the second-place prize of a $3,000 donation. The Food Bank of Delaware attributes three meals to every dollar raised, for a total contribution of 9,102 meals in the community. The United Food Bank in Mesa, Arizona, attributes five meals to every dollar donated, representing 24,095 meals donated by the Tempe, Arizona office, earning them the third-place prize of a $1,000 contribution.

An important component of Flagship’s culture is centered on supporting local nonprofits and organizations that improve quality of life. This dedication is demonstrated through the contributions of associates to local food banks, corporate programs conducted throughout the year, and the Volunteer Time Off (VTO) program that allows associates to volunteer their time in the community.

The annual food drive and volunteer efforts exemplify the Company’s core values of integrity, respect, and commitment to making a positive difference in our community. Flagship extends its gratitude to each associate who plays a role, no matter how big or small, in making its volunteer efforts a success throughout the year.
