ATLANTA, GA – December 18, 2017 – Competing in the inaugural CapTech National Food Fight, the Atlanta office of CapTech raised $1,620 for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. The CapTech Food Fight is a friendly competition among the consulting firm's eight office locations. The check presentation took place at the Food Bank on December 15th.
"During this busy holiday season, with the need continuing to grow, we are grateful for the support of CapTech," said Lan Huynh, Food Drive & Event Specialist at the Food Bank. "Their generous donation will help provide nutritious meals for children, seniors and working families in our community."
CapTech's National Food Fight raised over $40,000 for local food banks across the country this year. Over a two week period in November, CapTechers in the Denver office competed in the friendly rivalry against other CapTech markets to raise the most funds per capita for local food banks. The Food Fight started as a local competition in 2013 at the company's headquarters in Richmond, VA and was expanded company-wide this year with enthusiasm and excitement.
"It was inspiring to see our CapTechers come together with such generous spirit to make an impact against hunger," said Boyd Christian, CapTech's Atlanta Office Lead. "We are humbled by the commitment to community that the Food Fight highlighted across our office and CapTech's markets."
