Blackhawk’s Manhattan, MT team recently competed for a good cause.

The group split up between teams (Team Stache and Team T-Series) to compete to see who could donate more food for the Three Forks Food Bank. There were over 50 employees on each team!

Employees raised 1,800 pounds of food and delivered it all to the food bank! Team Stache ended up with bragging rights, with the real winners being the users of the Food Bank!

This the first time the Manhattan crew held the food drive competition, and it’s likely to be a repeat as it served as a great employee engagement and team building initiative that helped them achieve their overall goal of helping and serving others.
