Enterprise - March 2018
“Supporting communities now and into the future.”
This motto is something Enterprise takes literally. Since their founding in 1957, Enterprise has been committed to making life better in the communities their customers and employees live and work. Enterprise employees spend their time working in the community mentoring at-risk youth, volunteering in homeless shelters, cleaning up local parks and supporting food banks. Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) is one fortunate food bank to have the support of Enterprise. SFBFS is a proud recipient of a $21,500 donation from the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation to address food insecurity in Sacramento County.
The donation is part of a program called Fill Your Tank that celebrates the company’s 60th anniversary by providing $60 million to fight hunger around the globe. Fill Your Tank includes a hunger awareness campaign that features stories of what is possible when we’re running on a “full tank” – that is, when we have enough to eat. Hunger is often invisible and the campaign helps make hunger in our communities more visible. In presenting the donation, Dirk Ruinard, Group Rental Manager with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, said, “Enterprise Rent-A-Car is woven into the fabric of the Sacramento community and food insecurity is an issue for our community. This donation to SFBFS will support those who need a little help to reach their full potential.”
SFBFS is incredibly grateful for Enterprise’s support. Thanks to the generosity of companies like Enterprise, SFBFS can continue to provide essential services to individuals and families in need.
