Pepsi Beverage Company of Seattle has been involved with local community events and charitable organizations for many years. Earlier this year Pepsi-Seattle was recognized as Corporate Partner of the Year in 2016 by Wellspring Family Services.
Wellspring Family Services is a nonprofit, multi-service agency that serves the low-income community in Seattle and King County. By offering services in five areas: mental health, family homelessness, early learning, basic needs and domestic violence intervention, Wellspring has helped thousands of individuals, children and families break the cycle of instability and adversity to create positive, permanent change.
Pepsi-Seattle has partnered with Wellspring Family Services since 2009 to provide beverages for countless organization events including open houses and the Powerful Change Luncheon, which Pepsi-Seattle sponsors each spring. Pepsi also contributes yearly to several Wellspring donation drives, including the Fresh Start drive and the Back to School campaign.
In a recent blog, Wellspring President and CEO Ruthann Howell was quoted saying, “It’s so wonderful to have this partnership with our Rainier Valley neighbor and so heartening to see a successful corporation like Pepsi step forward so significantly in helping us solve our community’s challenges. We greatly value our relationship with Pepsi and look forward to working with them for years to come.”
We’re proud of the partnerships our member organizations have created and look forward to more opportunities to give back to the local communities across our state.
