Tooting Our Own Cans

For the last three years, Cincinnati MKTG employees have celebrated the holidays with our neighbors in need. This year, the 21 employees donated 10 large boxes of canned goods, household staples and personal care items to Valley Interfaith Food & Clothing Center (VIFCC) in Wyoming, Ohio, less than a mile and a half from the MKTG offices.

Administrative Coordinator Arnie Witt delivered the goods, where they were immediately placed in the pantry for distribution to waiting customers. The office’s philanthropy is particularly important to Witt, as her community came together when a fire claimed all her family’s possessions—except for the nightgowns and t-shirts they were wearing—around the holidays when she was 5 years old.

“To me, it wasn’t even a traumatic experience because of the generosity neighbors and strangers showed us. I remember that every season and try to give back.”

The Cincinnati office continues the giving tradition for Christmas, by gifting a toy and clothing item/outfit to 21 community children through VIFCC.
