Our theme for May is one of our 4Cs: Compassion. With that theme in mind, FTI has again chosen to support Food Banks for our next company-wide effort.  This will be our 2nd annual May All Be Fed food drive.

The need is great, food banks across the country are serving 55 percent more people now than before the pandemic. As a result of the pandemic, it is estimated 1 in 8 Americans could face hunger. That’s roughly 42 million people in the United States, including 13 million children, who may face hunger in 2022. Because of the ongoing effects of the pandemic and rising inflation rates in our economy, millions of people are visiting food banks and many of them are getting help for the first time. Our neighbors who previously had stable incomes have now lost jobs or had their hours cut back. As food banks are stepping up to put food on the table for those who need it during this uncertain time, we want to be to help them have the supplies they need to meet this great need.

Starting May 9th to May 31st, the FTI 4th C (Charity outreach of FTI) will run the campaign, “May All Be Fed”. Each of our offices has chosen a Food Bank to support. We’ve worked with each Food Bank to set up an Amazon Wish List so that you can support the event from your home.  It’s as simple as purchasing items on an Amazon list curated for the food bank in your office area. We’ve set up the lists so that the items will ship directly to the food bank.

Last year FTI was able to raise over $40,000 in food and hard cash donations through the generous outpouring of the employees and the 4th C.  FTI wants to exceed that goal and reach $50,000 in food and hard cash donations (combined total from our Food Drive purchases, T-shirt/Sweatshirt fundraising, and donations) to support this critical effort which can and will make a massive difference to those in need.

To join in this campaign with FTI you can support in any of the following ways:

  • Participate with our local FTI office by using the Amazon Smile list to purchase items needed at our sponsored food pantries.  (see food pantry list below)
  • Spread the word by sharing the FTI webpage URL on your social media networks, which has all the information on our May All Be Fed campaign. ( https://www.fti-net.com/may-all-be-fed-2022 ) and tag Frontier Technology Inc or use out #TogetherWeAreFTI

  • Purchase a “May All Be Fed” T-shirt and donate by clicking here.
    • You can purchase a shirt/sweatshirt for $30.00/$35.00 then roughly $15.00/$20.00 goes to the food bank initiative with a matching donation of $15.00 by the 4th C making their donation $30.00/$35.00.  The total collected from the t-shirt funds will be divided up equally between the sponsored food banks at the end.
