On Tuesday, December 18th, Team Cone Human Resources Department along with professionals from the Ocala Human Resource Management Association held their annual Christmas luncheon at Team Cone’s hospitality room. The point of this luncheon was not to simply celebrate the year’s successes but to feed those in need in the community.
Together, the human resources professionals teamed up with The Pack Shack organization were able to fill 5,265 meals of cheesy rice and vegetables for donation to and distribution by Brother’s Keeper of Ocala.
“This event was a great opportunity to live our company Core Value of Giving Back With Caring,” said Team Cone H.R. Director J.J. Jarrell. “This event was a fun way to come together with the H.R. community in Ocala and give of our time. We had fun and we did something to help our neighbors.”
