For the second consecutive year, Infinity, Inc. proudly joins the movement against hunger in Georgia, serving as a local champion for Bytes for Bites and calling out fellow IT companies and departments to compete.
The Bytes for Bites Goal
Bytes for Bites is a friendly two-week food and fund drive competition coordinated by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) and the Georgia Food Bank Association. The goal is to engage Georgia’s technology and startup community in the fight against hunger through a friendly competition to benefit Georgia’s regional Food Banks. With more than 1 in every 5 Georgia kids at risk for hunger, this problem hits the hardest over the summer months when children no longer have access to free or reduced cost school meals.
So from June 10-21, the Infinity, Inc. team encourages IT companies and departments here in Savannah to join those across the state in raising funds and pounds of food to help our local food bank, America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia. Individuals and other businesses can contribute as well and should contact us about food and financial donations, or simply check back here during the competition.
“According to the Department of Education, there are more than 50,000 children in coastal Georgia at risk for hunger. That should be unacceptable for us in the business community.
Infinity has partnered with America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia for many years because they make a difference in people’s lives by providing nourishing meals in the most efficient way possible. We are grateful to the Savannah community for letting us serve area businesses for the last 20 years. Supporting America’s Second Harvest is just one small way we can give back. Please join us in working to make this year even more successful than the last.” – Infinity, Inc. CEO, Chuck Brown
Throwing Down the Gauntlet
Coastal Georgia was represented in Bytes for Bites for the first time in 2018 with Infinity, Inc. proudly leading the effort. And after a spirited competition with EDTS and Speros locally, and more than 30 companies statewide, we raised nearly $70,000 and over 9,000 pounds of food.
So now let’s do it again!
We’re looking at you, fellow Managed Services Providers; and you, City of Savannah IT Department, Chatham County Information Comm. Service Department, Gulfstream and JCB IT departments; Information Technology Services at Savannah State, Georgia Southern – Armstrong, and Savannah Tech. Plus all you Creative Coast startups – let’s take a big bite out of hunger here in our own community!
Technology companies can register through Friday, June 21 to join the fight against hunger in our community, but you’ll only get bonus points if you register by June 1st.
