Easley, SC – March 1, 2010-When Tammy Summerell, Human Resources Administrator at CSI Technology Outfitters (Computer Software Innovations, Inc.) located in Easley, approached United Way President Julie Capaldi for suggestions on which agencies would benefit from a food drive; United Christian Ministries and Clemson Community Care were first on the list. As long time United Way funded agencies, Capaldi was aware of the immense pressure both agencies were facing trying to meet the growing needs of the community.
Teresa Nash and Karen Ellers, Executive Directors of United Christian Ministries and Clemson Community Care, were thrilled to be the beneficiaries of CSI Technology Outfitter’s efforts.
“We have been shocked by the number of requests for assistance from people who have never needed help in their lives. They are completely humiliated by their situation and are having a very difficult time. When someone asks for food, they are truly needy”, said Nash.
Karen Ellers, with Clemson Community Care agrees that these are very difficult times.
“It is wonderful to have our food supplies replenished after the busy holiday season”, said Ellers.
CSI Technology Outfitters collected more than 7,500 pounds of food items to be split between the two agencies.
“This is one of the largest food donations we have received from one business”, said Nash. “We are so grateful to the employees of CSI Technology Outfitters for their efforts.”
Nancy Hedrick, CEO of CSI Technology Outfitters praised her team for their generosity. “I work with an awesome group of generous people. They always come through when asked”, said Hedrick.
