October 2012

MeritCard helped fight hunger this week as 18 employees volunteered their time during the week to sort, organize, pack, and distribute food at the North Texas Food Bank in Cockrell Hill. MeritCard helped the distribution center deliver food to their network of over 340 Food Assistance Partners. Those partners include food pantries, after school programs, senior meal programs, shelters, and more. Everyone was proud of the man-hours and sweat equity that were invested that day. Plans for a return visit to the distribution center are scheduled for November.

As soon as they crossed the finish line (loaded with shock wires) they started planning for next year!
