Moving Forward and Giving Back: FreedomPay Serves Philadelphia
Food isn’t scarce in our country—in fact, we have an abundant supply. But 1 in 7 Americans will still face hunger this year. However, Philabundance, a nonprofit organization based in Philadelphia, is trying to change those statistics. Last year, the company and its affiliates distributed 24 million pounds of food to hungry families in their community. With donations from various food drives, area retailers, and cash contributions used to purchase bulk foods at wholesale prices, this organization is making a huge impact in Philadelphia. That’s why FreedomPay is excited to have participated with them in a food drive during the 2017 holidays, donating 693 pounds of food to feed 693 hungry individuals.
Few things are as rewarding as reaching out to those in need and having a direct impact on their lives, and the partnership with Philabundance is just one example of how FreedomPay is making positive contributions to the City of Brotherly Love. After a recent relocation from the suburbs back to the city, the FreedomPay team has been re-energized with a much larger purpose than ever before: serving those who are less fortunate.
Aimed at connecting to communities, FreedomPay has partnered with other charitable organizations as well. For example, we teamed up with the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House in August 2017. This revered organization serves families of critically ill children, providing services such as housing near the hospitals where their children are being treated. To raise funds for this vital project, FreedomPay participated in the Philalympics, a fun-filled day of corporate challenges, that included wacky and entertaining events like adult tricycling and slingshot competitions. FreedomPay had an incredible experience shirking a day of adulthood for a great cause!
At FreedomPay’s new headquarters, boasting nearly 25,000 square feet of space in the FMC Tower of downtown Philadelphia, we capture data and turn it into business intelligence that can drive sales and productivity for your company. As the first company in the USA to be PCI certified in P2PE encryption, we have the competitive advantage in ensuring data security, an advantage that may be missing in our adult tricycling abilities, though!
A company that cares about communities, and a company whose cutting-edge technology helps make a difference for the vendors we partner with, FreedomPay’s presence in Philadelphia is a benefit for the city at large. To learn more about FreedomPay, visit our website today!
