Connecticut Business Leaders Work to Combat Hunger
The members of Business Networking International (BNI) Stamford Friday Chapter conducted a food drive in support of The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. Cash donations and more than 250 pounds of groceries were delivered to the Food Bank on Monday, November 19, just in time for Thanksgiving. The Food Bank is an efficient and effective provider of nutritious food to non-profit organizations that feed the hungry in Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford and Wilton. The Food Bank serves as the bridge between those who want to donate food and those who need it.
BNI Stamford Friday is a professional networking group. It functions by helping to build personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals.
Last year, members of BNI passed millions of referrals that generated billions of dollars of business for each other. Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of salespeople representing your business, and in return you are representing their businesses. “What goes around comes around. If I help you, you'll help me and we will both benefit as a result,” notes Jeff Roberts, President of BNI Stamford Friday.
