  • Brand It Blue – Current Initiative in Grand Rapids

    August 3 - August 28, 2020

    Express Employment Professionals of Grand Rapids has partnered with Kids' Food Basket for Brand it Blue 2020. From August 3 until August 28, we are collecting food items to help provide sack suppers to children throughout West Michigan.

    Kids' Food Basket is on a mission to end childhood hunger in West Michigan. They currently serve over 8,000 children at 52 locations across West Michigan. They provide sack suppers for children to bring home to ensure they have a healthy meal at the end of each day. Throughout the pandemic food insecurity has continued to increase in our community, so the need is greater than ever. Join us in the fight against hunger, join us for Brand it Blue 2020!

    Join the Initiative!

    We are looking for companies to partner with us and host a collection site at their business. Express will provide collection bins or totes and pick up all donations the week of August 24. This is a great way to engage your entire team in a community initiative and let Express handle all of the details! If you would like to get involved, please contact Casey Jankoska -

  • The Brand It Blue Initiative  

    The Brand It Blue Initiative was born out of a desire to serve and partner with a variety of nonprofit organizations in more than 800 locations in the United States, Canada, and South Africa. As part of the mission of Express Employment Professionals, our franchises help connect qualified job seekers with reputable companies, but also go above and beyond to provide hope to their communities.

    In recent years, franchise offices partnered with local food banks to help end chronic hunger. Between 2013 – 2020, Express staff, associates, clients, friends, and family provided nearly 1,000,000 meals through food drives, monetary collections, and volunteer hours served!

    Realizing our franchisees are passionate about numerous causes, from hunger to education, homeless animals to senior citizens, the Brand It Blue Initiative is now a year-long, expanded philanthropic effort. We invite you to join us as we give back.
