Engages Customers and Partners at Annual Customer Conference to Support the Empty Bowls Project
Columbus, Ohio, April 7, 2016 – Macola, a leading provider of ERP and business software, today unveiled details of its corporate social responsibility and community service programs to fight hunger issues locally and across the Americas. Since 2015 the company has provided financial support, volunteerism and product donations to food banks across the country to help them streamline operations and better serve their communities. This year, Macola is participating in the Empty Bowls Project, an international grassroots effort to raise both money and awareness in the fight to end hunger.
Additionally, Macola has continued its Macola Fights Hunger initiative in Central Ohio, which encourages employees, friends and family to donate to Mid-Ohio Foodbank – on behalf of the company. According to Yolanda Owens at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, a donation of as little as $25 can provide at least 100 meals for a single person.
"Our employees, partners and customers are passionate about fighting hunger in the Americas," said Alison Forsythe, managing director, Macola. "For that reason, we have galvanized our resources with corporate philanthropy and employee volunteerism to support various programs that reflect this commitment."
At Macola's leadership meeting earlier this year, the team kicked off its participation in the Empty Bowls Project by painting bowls to auction off at various events throughout the year. The organization's largest auction will be at Macola's annual customer conference, Exact Macola Evolve, taking place April 19-22 in Atlanta, GA, with all proceeds going to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
Exact Macola Evolve 2016 will focus on trends and disruptions in the manufacturing and distribution markets, aims to provide attendees—C-level executives, consultants, business management, IT professionals and daily users of Exact Macola solutions—with new tools and ideas to accelerate company growth, transform their businesses and positively impact bottom lines.
