GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  (WOTV)- Express Employment Professionals, the largest privately held staffing company in North America, is setting aside a day of volunteerism known as “Brand It Blue Day.”

On Saturday, June 14, Express Employment Professionals offices from California to North Carolina to Canada will join together at local food banks and pantries to help fight hunger – a growing epidemic that impacts millions of people in the U.S., Canada and around the world every day.

“Brand It Blue Day is a day each Express franchise can come together for one great cause to help the community,” said Janis Petrini, Grand Rapids Express franchisee. “Brand It Blue Day is a chance for Express offices to honor the communities that have supported us through the years by giving back.”

On June 14, from 10am to 12pm employees from Express will be volunteering at the Family Network of Wyoming and will be accepting donations of non-perishable food and personal care items. “Because Brand It Blue Day takes place on Father’s Day weekend, we feel it’s a great opportunity for families to enjoy the importance of volunteering together,” Petrini said. “It’s going to be a great time to bring families together and show what it looks like to help others.”

If you would like to volunteer, please sign up at ExpressPros.com/BrandItBlue. Volunteers will receive Express blue T-shirts to wear on Brand It Blue Day. This is the second year that the staffing company has sponsored Brand It Blue Day. In 2013, 192 Express offices and 1,500 volunteers donated more than 110,000 pounds of food to local food banks.
