Novotus personnel give back to their local community food bank two years in a row and show what a huge difference a small company can make.

The company's yearly food drive gave 5,362 pounds, or more than two and a half tons of food for the local Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. The donation was organized by 93 Novotus personnel.

After providing nearly a ton of food a year ago, Novotus personnel set their sights on breaking their record. Again through the effort a genial competition among departments to gather the most pounds of food, they inspired one another to give much more this year. The successful group alone gave 1,953 pounds, exceeding last year's donation of 1,910 pounds.

"It's heartbreaking to think of how many local Austin residents, including children, go to bed hungry each night," stated Mike Mayeux, Founder and CEO. "We are a blessed organization and I am incredibly proud of our employees and their generosity. Giving back to our community will continue to be a priority at Novotus."

The Capital Area Food Bank of Texas is the biggest hunger-relief charitable organization in Central Texas. It offers food and grocery items, nutrition instruction, and social services outreach to 300,000 customers yearly. It is carried out via a network of 300 Partner Agencies in 21 Central Texas counties.

Its mission is to feed starving men and women and lead the community in ending hunger.
