Since its 2003 introduction in the United States, dunnhumby has maintained a huge corporate focus in community outreach. Through their ‘Helping Hands’ initiative, employees vote biannually on eight local charities to support. Through the enthusiasm of co-chairs Jayme Ponder and Lauren Blight, Freestore Foodbank has been fortunate to be one of their charities of choice since 2007. In that time, dunnhumby employees have stickered thousands of ducks for the Rubber Duck Regatta, bagged up hundreds of Power Packs, volunteered at the Giving Fields, and had 75% of the 500-person Cincinnati office come out to volunteer during our Holiday Food Distributions, even the interns! Helping Hands has grown to include all of dunnhumby’s US regional offices and this year will support 30 charities across the country. We are so grateful for the service and dedication of corporations like dunnhumby.
