KE Cleveland Office Wins Award for 2018 Hunger Relief Campaign
Jun 19, 2018
Karpinski Engineering’s Cleveland office was honored with the 2018 Edmond V. Worley HOPE Award for their contributions to this year’s Harvest for Hunger campaign.
The award, named after the founding director of the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, is given to an organization with fewer than 250 employees that demonstrates “unparalleled commitment to Harvest for Hunger” (Source).
Paul Clark, 2018 Harvest for Hunger co-chair and regional president of PNC Bank, Northern Ohio, commended the Karpinski Engineering team for the way they have amplified their campaign efforts over the past two years. He highlighted how the team has extended their campaign outside the office, inviting friends and industry partners to participate as well.
This year, the Cleveland office hosted their second after-work happy hour, which featured a silent auction that raised more than $4,000. They also exceeded their 2018 fundraising goal of $10,000, raising $11,600 to help fight hunger in Northeast Ohio.
Harvest for Hunger is an annual food and funds drive, providing critical resources to local hunger relief organizations in 21 counties in Northeast and North Central Ohio. This year, Harvest for Hunger had a record-breaking campaign, raising enough funds to provide 22,157,986 nutritious meals to members of our communities.
