Crestmark South Region Office Fills Bags of Hope with St. Vincent de Paul

TROY, MICHIGAN (July 15, 2013) – Crestmark’s Baton Rouge, Louisiana office enjoyed participating in their local St. Vincent de Paul Society’s Bags of Hope Program for the second time this year. The program distributes bagged meals to the needy. The Crestmark team made hundreds of fresh sandwiches and bagged meals on June 29th.

“We had another great turnout: 15 Crestmark employees and family members worked non-stop for two hours. It was unbelievable the number of sandwiches we made and bagged up as well as the number of snack bags that were assembled. I don’t think we could have pulled it off if not for our great teamwork! It was an awesome experience and we can’t wait to return.” said Mikalyn Atkinson, Vice President and Account Executive.

“We have a great group of employees here,” said Pat Haney, Executive Vice President and West Division President. “I am very proud of their dedication to helping our clients, each other, and our surrounding community.”

The employees who participated were Mikalyn Atkinson, Sevie Datz, Christine Henderson, Cheryl Kirk, Karen Lessard, Ray LaBelle, Theresa Martin, Christy Morgan, Letha Pfister, Jennifer Scott, and Denise Sharon. The team greatly enjoyed working with the Bags of Hope Program and plan to participate in more events with St. Vincent de Paul this year.
