Corrigo, a JLL company and world's largest facilities management platform, has announced Corrigo Cares, a company-wide initiative that directly connects the work completed via the company's network of over 2.5 million users to help provide meals* to people in need.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) 2018 Household Food Security Statistics released earlier this week, 37 million Americans face hunger annually, including more than 11 million children. Corrigo's core values are predicated on helping others, and the company's name means "to heal or set right" in Latin. Our effort to help provide meals is one small opportunity for the company to give back to local communities in need.
The Corrigo Cares program launches in partnership with Feeding America®, the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States. For every three work orders in the United States sent over the Corrigo platform, Corrigo Cares will donate one meal to Feeding America. In the program's first year, Corrigo will donate more than 1 million meals nationwide via the Feeding America network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries that serve every county in the United States.
"Corrigo from its inception has had an unwavering commitment to set things right," said Jack Watkinson, EVP of Strategy for Corrigo and Corrigo Cares Executive Sponsor. "To set things right in a way that was bigger than ourselves and bigger than our software. As our work order count grows, and our technology grows, there is no limit to the impact we can have on the communities around us."
Based in Tualatin, OR, Corrigo has four offices nationwide: Tualatin, OR (Portland), Allen, TX (Dallas), Alpharetta, GA (Atlanta), and San Mateo, CA (San Francisco). The Corrigo Cares program gives its employees an opportunity to support Feeding America, which facilitates the distribution of more than 4 billion meals each year.
"Since we announced the concept for Corrigo Cares, our employees have pushed us to do more. We are already planning several days of service at food banks near our offices, which is a way for our employees to come together as a community to support all our communities," said Tim Bernardez, President of Corrigo.
