AVI-SPL Joins Kforce to Feed Children in Africa

AVI-SPL Kforce "Feeding Children Everywhere"Tampa, FL – In November, Kforce hosted a volunteer event at their Tampa office with Feeding Children Everywhere. To support the cause, Kforce invited several of their corporate partners, including Team AVI-SPL (our group of volunteers) to participate in their one-day food packaging event. In total, more than 800 people volunteered and packaged a total of 250,000 meals. The meals were bagged, boxed and shipped to the horn of Africa, where the food crisis has left more than 10 million people in need.

Thanks to Kforce for inviting Team AVI-SPL to participate in this terrific volunteer event!
