PROVO, Utah, December 8, 2011 – Tahitian Noni International’s (TNI) sales and service department has been recognized as one of the best?qualifying as a finalist for the American Business “Stevie” awards. But they do so much more than just answer the phone. For the third year in a row, they have donated food items to the Community Action Service and Food Bank in Provo, which offers local food bank services for Utah, Wasatch, and Summit counties.
Because of the agent’s generosity, they were able to increase the amount collected for donations this year by nearly 40%. Through the team lunches, penny wars, and many individual donations, our team was able to make a significant contribution to Community Action which will help dozens of families have food during the holidays.
Here are a few highlights from their efforts:
3,600 items donated in total – all of the items were on the most needed items list the food bank provided
14 large turkeys were donated
2,947 pounds of food was donated (up from the 2,500 pounds they donated last year)
The food will feed approximately 30 families for a week
“My favorite comment from the food bank came from Jim Thomas, the Food Bank Manager,” Says Craig Coyler, Managing Director of the Sales and Service department. “He looked in our truck with excitement and said ‘You guys are amazing!’ One of the things that most impressed the directors of Community Action was that our donation did not come from a corporation – it came from individuals. It is truly an honor and privilege to be a part of this Sales & Service team and to come together each year to do something good and noble for those of our community who stand in need.
“Working at TNI is more than clocking in and clocking out. We make a difference!”
To raise funds, the department participated in “penny wars.” This challenge was to see which team could donate the most money from just coin donations. They also had team lunches and many individual donations.
