CBIZ Mission:Possible Food Drive highlights and photos

The CBIZ Mission:Possible Food Drive set a company record this year, raising 648,000 pounds of food.

In addition to the desire to donate to local food banks, what helps make the Food Drive so successful is the creative and competitive environment we fostered among offices thoughout the country.

My previous post detailed which CBIZ offices collected the most food to earn prizes such as a visit from our Chairman and CEO or our President and COO. This post will recognize the top office themes, displays, and fundraisers used during the Food Drive.

Top office themes -- CBIZ MHM Thompson Dunavant Memphis, CBIZ Chicago, and CBIZ San Diego:

Here are some of my favorite fundraisers.

The Cleveland office set up a mini golf course in the office. Participants paid $2 for each round, and that money was donated to the Cleveland Food Bank.


In the Philadelphia office, the employees decided to "skunk" each other with signs announcing that a colleague`s area was skunked. To remove the skunk, the victim had to pay $1. Employees could avoid being skunked by purchasing insurance for $5.

Not factoring in the pounds per employee, CBIZ Philadelphia collected the most overall pounds at 44,318 pounds.


Lastly, I wanted to share some other highlights from this year’s food drive.

CBIZ Benefits & Insurance Services of Tennessee has only been with us a couple months, and in their first food drive, they placed fourth in the large office category.

CBIZ Medical Management Professionals in Houston also improved their total from 2011 by 1,900 percent. In 2011, they collected 30 pounds versus 600 pounds this year.
