With the world changing so quickly around us, it is important for CMIT Solutions to support the local communities they are in during the good times and the bad. As a brand, CMIT Solutions is dedicated to being a trusted partner and giving back to the community is just one way it lives up to that value.
Back in April, Bob Riesenbach, owner of CMIT Solutions of Cherry Hill, committed to sponsoring a weekly dinner for a local hospital and its frontline workers — feeding 50 workers each meal. He soon brought this idea to the CMIT Solutions corporate team who helped him turn this into a systemwide initiative. Riesenbach rallied more than 20 franchisees to donate meals and raise money in their local communities.
In total, CMIT Solutions franchisees have donated more than 900 meals to frontline workers and raised more than $3,000 for various organizations.
Here are a few highlights of CMIT solutions franchisees giving back:
