FONA International was named a TOP ’TEER award winner, honoring the “outstanding local impact” its employee volunteer efforts have on the community. “Volunteering is part of the culture here at FONA,” said Lindsey Clark, Benefits Specialist at FONA International. “FONA was founded on seven core values, one of which is ‘Do the Right Thing.’ Volunteering is just an extension of that.”
“We are very grateful for the support FONA and its employees provide us,” said Tia Claffy, Volunteer Manager at Northern Illinois Food Bank, the organization that nominated FONA for the award. “Over the past three years, more than 150 of their employees have volunteered, providing over 400 hours of service.” TOP ’TEER is an annual designation that celebrates Chicago’s small businesses (15 to 1000 employees) that have made an outstanding local volunteering impact in their communities.
