Arkansas Food Bank

Jason International has recently instigated a campaign called “Dress Down For A Cause Day” to raise money and collect food for the Arkansas Food Bank. Employees are allowed to wear jeans on Friday if they donate money or canned food for the drive.

The Arkansas Food Bank distributes about 34,000 pounds of food per day to 450 agencies all over the state, which in turn feeds more than 23,000 hungry Arkansans every day.

“Jason International employees have been very generous in their contributions so far, and we look forward to the opportunity to donate much more in the months to come,” says Melissa Pollock, Human Resources Manager at Jason International. “The Arkansas Food Bank is a wonderful organization that is fighting to eliminate hunger in our state, and we at Jason are proud to be involved in that effort.”
