SCRANTON — Express Employment Professionals, an internationally franchised staffing company, set aside a day of volunteerism known as “Brand It Blue Day.”

Express Employment Professionals offices from California to North Carolina to Canada joined together at local food banks and pantries June 8 to help fight hunger — a growing epidemic that impacts millions of people in the U.S., Canada and around the world every day.

Amy Clegg, of Clarks Summit, Scranton Express franchisee hosted a food drive at her West Market Street office and her client companies also participated in collecting non-perishable items. The items were delivered on June 8 as volunteers served lunch at the St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen in Scranton.

This is the fourth year the staffing company has held Brand It Blue Day. During that time, more than 200 Express offices and 1,500 volunteers have donated their time and resources to provide more than 156,000 meals to local food banks and charitable organizations.
