OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Express Employment Professionals, one of the nation's largest privately-held staffing companies, will be donating $10,000 to a deserving nonprofit organization in celebration of a recent major milestone.
Express associates at more than 550 franchise locations in the United States, Canada and South Africa recently worked a combined total of 3 million hours in one week.
"A lot can be achieved in 3 million hours," said Bob Funk, CEO and chairman of the board. "We could build the Brooklyn Bridge three times over. Or the CN Tower in Toronto 103 times. And in that time we helped change the lives of the more than 80,000 people who found work through Express franchises in just seven days.
"Now, you can help us make an even bigger difference by choosing a charity to donate $10,000 to as part of our 3 Million and Counting campaign."
Charities eligible to win the $10,000 are Big Brothers Big Sisters, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and Habitat for Humanity. To learn more and vote, visit Express' website at www.expresspros.com/3million or ExpressPros for Employers Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Expressprosforemployers.
