During his inaugural address, John F. Kennedy said,
“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
The Energy Management Service (EMS) industry has given much to EnTouch Controls and it’s through this we felt we needed to give back.
This past weekend, James Walton, VP of Product Strategy / Founder, flew to Florida to be a part of the Restaurant Facilities Management Association (RFMA) annual charity project event. First started in 2011, RFMA Gives is the charity “arm” of this industry organization which selects a charitable shelter or kitchen that needs repairs or remodeling. The organization that was chosen this year was The Daily Bread housed at The Christian Service Center in Orlando, Florida.
The Daily Bread is located in downtown Orlando and their mission is to mobilize the central Florida community to eradicate poverty through the provision of services and resources that foster hope, well-being and empowerment. They are a faith-based organization that provides programs designed to meet physical, emotional and spiritual needs regardless of race, religion or gender.
Joining more than 150 people from across the U.S., James represented the EnTouch Controls family by helping to paint, plant, clean and scrub the soup kitchen. Through this, The Daily Bread received $500,000 worth of donated labor and materials. EnTouch donated $20,000 worth of hardware to complete the job.
“The work we do here will have a tremendous impact on the people The Daily Bread helps,” says James Walton, VP of Product Strategy/ Founder, EnTouch. “It’s great to see the restaurant community coming together to support such a meaningful cause.”
