Between the recent large-scale launch of a white label automation service, conducting real estate thought leader studies, and attending the top proptech conferences across the nation, Imprev also devotes time to serve our local community.
For Imprev’s Annual Day of Service in June, dedicated Imprevians dressed in layers and worked in shifts sorting and packing food at the local Food Lifeline. Food Lifeline is a “surplus food rescue” that gathers otherwise-wasted food from the food industry, and delivers it to food banks, shelters, and meal programs throughout Western Washington. This amazing service relies on volunteers to sort pallet deliveries, inspect food for quality, and store it appropriately either in their warehouse or cold storage.
This was my second year participating in Imprev’s Annual Day of Service. I’m thrilled to be part of a company that is passionate about giving back to the community! As a digital marketer, I’m always looking for strategies and campaigns that make the highest impact in work and life, and working with Food Lifeline definitely falls into that category. So much of our life activities and success revolves around food, and no children or adult should have to miss a meal.
“Out of everything we do at Imprev, volunteering for Food Lifeline is one of the most important events we do together. Sorting through thousands of pounds of food may be back breaking but knowing that someone isn’t going to go hungry because of it makes it all worth it! It is amazing when we all come together to help what we can accomplish for others.” – Elise Mattson, Director of Creative Services
“Volunteering to help feed our community feels great but it feels even better to do it with such a great group of people.” – Laura Murdock, Design Lead
“Working in software, the fruits of our labor are often slow to materialize and their effect on the world can seem quite small or difficult to measure. We can spend an entire day discussing features or writing code together without feeling like we made any real difference in the world. In just a few hours of volunteering together at Food Lifeline, we were able to produce measurable results and we could take pride in knowing that our work would have a real positive impact for people in our community. It feels great to end your day with the satisfaction of knowing you and your team were able to accomplish something meaningful, especially when you get to have a lot of fun in the process.” – Alex Grummer, Full Stack Software Engineer
Imprev is honored to have spent the day serving neighbors. Here are just a few photos from our annual day of service. If you’re also in Western Washington, and want to assist Food Lifeline, visit their website at https://foodlifeline.org/how-to-help
