To celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary, partner Cadence is giving its employees new, meaningful opportunities to give back to the community together with Rise Against Hunger. Kicking off its worldwide anniversary campaign in Munich, Germany, in April, Cadence teams around the globe have spent the past several months participating in Rise Against Hunger Experience events with a goal to package 300,000 meals for this campaign. Since then, nearly 1,000 Cadence employees have participated in events in 10 cities from San Jose, California, to Bangalore, India. In addition to participating in our meal packaging events, 226 Cadence employees have also donated more than $22,000 through an employee-matching gifts campaign benefiting Rise Against Hunger. The campaigns will continue until the end of July with Cadence employees in Shanghai, China, reaching this goal.
Through their anniversary campaign, Cadence’s commitment to our mission will impact 1,615 lives in communities around the world, enabling them to rise and break the cycle of poverty. Additionally, contributions to the employee-matching gifts program will allow Rise Against Hunger to go beyond the meals and tackle ending hunger with a holistic approach by addressing the root causes of poverty. Donations from companies like Cadence have helped us establish sustainable development projects worldwide including agricultural training and microfinance programs for women, allow us to respond to emergencies, fund our monitoring and evaluation process and provide general organizational support.
“Our Rise Against Hunger event was a huge success. We had over 80 participants, which included family members as young as four years old. We even accomplished our goal 15 minutes early! It was awesome to see everyone come together, to work toward a single goal, all while having fun at the same time. I’m so proud to be a member of the Cadence Austin Team!”- Jane Abadir, Austin Executive Administrator
“We were thrilled to be introduced to Rise Against Hunger. We filled our 20,000+ bags right on time, and everyone around here had a big grin on their face.”- Larry Disenhof, Legal Group Director and Chelmsford Site Committee Member
“This was an amazing Munich team event across all different groups and organizations. And we are very glad and honored to contribute to Cadence’s commitment to donate 300,000 meals to Rise Against Hunger.” – Joern Stohmann, Munich Site Leader and AE Group Director
“There was an enthusiastic response from employees to volunteer and there was a really uplifting energy during the activity—lots of laughs, great teamwork across groups, friendly competition between stations, and cheering when we hit the milestones. The feedback from employees has been very positive.” – Madhavi Rao, Marketing Director and Bangalore Site Lead
We are grateful for partners like Cadence who have joined our movement to end world hunger by 2030. Without their generous support, we would not be able to continue to support people in critical need and impact lives worldwide.
