  • Brand It Blue – Current Initiative in Grand Rapids

    July 11th - August 8th

    The Brand It Blue Initiative was born out of a desire to serve and partner with a local organization to make a difference and provide hope in our community. This year, we at Express Employment Professionals of Grand Rapids have proudly partnered with SECOM Resource Center for Brand it Blue 2022 to provide a wide variety of non perishable items for their food pantry.

    SECOM began in 1971 as an outreach ministry of four area churches to meet the needs of the surrounding neighborhood, particularly in the area of hunger and food insecurity.  In 1993, SECOM became an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Today, SECOM is a key resource center that gives help today and builds hope for tomorrow through connecting families with community resources, improving health, and providing educational and empowerment programs for low-income children and families.    

    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 8. 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 -

    Want to help in another way?

    Donate items at the Express office between 7AM & 6PM, Monday - Friday.
