Stampede Cares In Action

Stampede Cares participates in multiple team building and fundraising events throughout the year in order to strengthen our surrounding communities.

In 2017, Stampede Cares partnered with Denny’s in support of No Kid Hungry, a national nonprofit fighting to end child hunger, connect kids with nutritious foods and educate families about healthy, affordable cooking. Through carnival games at an all-staff picnic, T-shirt sales and a silent auction at a company barbeque, Stampede raised $7,644 to donate to the cause.

The No Kid Hungry campaign said Stampede’s efforts helped connect kids with more than 76,000 meals.

The team also steps it up each holiday season, donating hundreds of nonperishable food items to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Stampede is a longtime charitable partner with the GCFD.

Stampede CEO Brock Furlong Cares 

Brock is extremely passionate about giving back, especially when efforts work toward solving child hunger. In 2013, Panda Cares invited him to speak about the Power of Giving at the Panda Leaders Conference.
