Continuing a longstanding tradition, a Linde team recently visited the Community Food Bank of New Jersey to sort canned goods, meet new friends and make a difference in the community.
Located in Hillside, New Jersey, the food bank fights hunger and poverty over a wide swath of the state. The Linde team, from various departments in Murray Hill, New Jersey, included 13 employees and two interns from Germany, said Sarah Verbeke, a Linde staff scientist who organized the event.
“Everybody enjoyed working with people from other departments,” said Verbeke. “I heard somebody remark that they are really glad to work for a company that cares so much for the community and allows us to volunteer during work hours. The food bank does such important work for people in this tough economy. It was great to get over there and lend a hand.”
