Express Employment Professionals Partners with Inn of the Good Shepherd for Brand It Blue Initiative


Sarnia, May 28, 2019—The Sarnia Express Employment Professionals franchise office is partnering with The Inn of the Good Shepherd for the third year in a row as part of the Brand It Blue Initiative, a companywide philanthropic effort.

“The Brand It Blue Initiative is an opportunity for our team to partner with nonprofit organizations like The Inn and give back to a community that has supported us throughout the years,” said Bruce Hein, Sarnia Express Franchisee.

Through June 21, Express will host a food drive at its office, located at 347 Christina Street North, where donations of non-perishable food and personal care items will be accepted for The Inn of the Good Shepherd. Express is also getting their clients and other local businesses involved, asking workplaces to collect donations which will then be picked up by Express employees. On June 22, Express volunteers will deliver everything to The Inn, as well as volunteer onsite. Over the last two years, nearly 200 local businesses have participated in the food drive, collecting 6,400lbs in donations.

“The summertime is an especially difficult season for food banks,” Hein said. “The donations we receive will help provide meals for families in Sarnia-Lambton.”

Since the Brand It Blue Initiative launched in 2013, Express staff, associates, clients, family, and friends across North America have provided 600,000 meals to community food banks through food drives, monetary collections, and volunteer hours.

Established in 1981, The Inn of the Good Shepherd assists the disadvantaged through their food bank, soup kitchen, lodging, rent and utility assistance, income tax clinics, mobile market, reduced fare transit, and more.
