CGM US Lab Employees provide up to 3000 meals to Marylanders facing food insecurity
Employees representing the Lab Division of CompuGroup Medical US (CGM US) came together to start the year off by donating more than $1,000 and dozens of pantry items to the Maryland Food Bank.
Executive Assistant Lydia Schipper delivered the team's pantry items to the Community Crisis Center in Reisterstown, which is one of the distribution partners for the Maryland Food Bank. The team has held food drives in the past, but this was the first year team members could donate money virtually to benefit the cause.
"The CGM team raised enough funds to provide up to 3,000 meals for Marylanders facing food insecurity," Lydia said. "With this amazing teamwork, we have truly made a difference in our community."
Maryland Food Bank is a non-profit organization leading the movement to end hunger in Maryland.

The organization supplements this work with outreach programs that provide direct food assistance, educate the public on the importance of good nutrition, and fight hunger through innovative means.
"I couldn't be more proud of our team here in Owings Mills," said Carl Smith, General Manager, Lab Division, CompuGroup Medical US. "The team started this initiative on its own and far surpassed its original goal."
