A competitive and generous spirit motivated employees of Nexus Medical Consulting, 101 Thermon Drive, to donate almost 1,000 pounds of food to the Hays County Food Bank recently. Over the past four weeks, employees assiduously collected canned and non perishable food items. Little Guy movers volunteered to transport the hefty donation to the food bank.
“At Nexus we understand how important community outreach should be for all businesses,” said Ed Bolton, the company’s owner and president. “We have been greatly blessed and it is our responsibility as individuals to give to those who are hurting and needy among us.”
While the effort was inspired by the needs of economically challenged citizens in the community, the collection effort was aided by a certain amount of competition.
Said Bolton, “We love competition, and when we saw a fellow employee bring in a large amount of food, it was motivation for us to try harder and bring in more ourselves, especially because we knew our competition would only benefit those who are in need.”
Longtime Nexus employee Shannon Gildea added, “Nexus has always been supportive of employee efforts and ideas to help the public. It’s really great to see what can be done for the community by people just like you and me; we don’t need a special program to do it, we can just band together ourselves to make a difference.”Email | Print
