BerganKDV Tax Supervisor Halli Rodriguez was recently named Treasurer for Central Minnesota’s Kids Fighting Hunger nonprofit. BerganKDV HCM Systems Supervisor Rachael Maurer and Relationship Manager Joe Betzold also serve on the nonprofit’s board of directors. All three team members work in the firm’s St. Cloud office.
Kids Fighting Hunger engages the communities of Central Minnesota through education, partnerships, and volunteerism to provide temporary hunger relief. In 2019 Kids Fighting Hunger sent 855,630 meals, three containers of food to Mozambique, Venezuela, and Syria, and distributed 110,000 oatmeal, rice and beans, and rice and veggie meals to Central Minnesota food shelves.
The organization nourishes hungry children, but it also nourishes the 3,400 volunteers who packaged the meals as they have a chance to talk, share, laugh and connect with one another as they work. Community members interested in scheduling a packaging event with Kids Fighting Hunger may call 320-203-1799 or email the organization at kidsfightinghunger.org.
“We are so thankful to have Halli, Rachael and Joe serving on our board,” said Kids Fighting Hunger Executive Director Cathy Wogen, “Their combined business expertise helps us make the most of the resources that we have to fulfill our mission to make a lasting impact against local hunger.”
