Houston, TX (US) - In 2019, one of our company's loftiest goals was to help cyclist Phil Gaimon in his mission to raise $100,000 for the No Kid Hungry and Chefs Cycle organizations. These groups help to provide families facing hunger with the means and resources they need, such as access to food, education on nutrition and affordable cooking, and so much more. With employees and clients alike who come from diverse backgrounds, our team understands the value of having resources readily available for the families who need it most. In the Houston area alone, there are 1.1 million people facing food insecurity (Source: Houston Food Bank). Because of this, our team wanted to take steps to help support our community and those helping to lead the way.
Thankfully, those efforts have paid off.
As of the end of 2019, Gaimon reached his fundraising goal of $100,000! Through No Kid Hungry, these donations will be turned into 1 million meals for kids through education as well as government and school programs. Thank you to everyone who helped to do something good.
In November, Gaimon joined Integrated's Principal Consultant Jason Humber at our Houston office to discuss our company's support. He also joined local shop, Bicycle Speed Shop, and the local cycling community to raise more awareness of his cause.
Learn more about what these donations mean to the community, to our company, and more in Gaimon's latest update on YouTube - and stay tuned for announcements on how our company will be continuing our support this year!
