Philabundance Can Drive

SHRM Members, 

In an effort to support Philabundance, a program aimed to “get food into the hands of those who need it most, ” SHRM will be taking a trip to the Fresh Grocer to purchase cans of food to donate to this amazing cause!

This will take place on Sunday, November 15 at 12:00pm. We will meet outside of the front of Morgan Hall. If you are unable to make it, but have extra cans sitting in your cabinets, please feel free to donate them!
Below are some facts about the hunger crisis provided by Philabundance:

While the economic recession has forced many to re-examine their spending habits, for others it has shaken an already crumbling foundation of financial instability. Feeding America commissioned the 2010 Hunger in America Study, which reported:

  • One in six Americans struggle with the reality of hunger
  • 40% of people surveyed reported having to choose between paying for food and paying for their rent or mortgage
  • More than one third of households that access emergency food have one or more adults who is working

The Delaware Valley is one of the hardest hit areas nationwide, with our children paying the price:

  • About 27% percent of Philadelphians live below the poverty line
  • Our agencies have seen a 26% increase in need over the past year compared to a 22% increase from the year before.
  • One in every three children live in poverty
  • Each year, three quarters of a million people are at risk of food insecurity in the Delaware Valley

This crisis is happening in our urban centers, our outlying rural communities, and our own backyards. Philabundance has entered the eye of the storm to provide immediate relief as well as long-term strategies for better access to affordable, nutritious food.

SHRM Events for the week of November 2nd – 6th


Good morning everyone, hope you had a great weekend.

Here are the events for the week:

Wednesday, November 4th – Cynthia Donegan, Director of HR Operations, KPMG

This week we will be having Cynthia Donegan, Director of HR Operations at KPMG come and speak with us about the global business environment and HR’s role in global business. Please dress business casual for this meeting.


If you guys have paid full membership and have a National SHRM membership right now, please send me your National SHRM ID. I am requesting your ID so that National SHRM can renew on that account instead of creating another account for you, which we take away from the length of your membership. What I mean by that is that if your membership ends in January and I send your dues in now with no ID, National SHRM will create a new account in December for you instead of renewing your account which will allow you to have your membership renewed in January. Please send me your ID by Wednesday, November 11.

If you have any questions about this email or how to get your National SHRM ID please contact Phuong
