CalPERS employee John Hobbs, who co-chaired the fund's employee November-to-January food drive, sent out this Thursday e-mail about the effort:
Good Afternoon CalPERS,
Attached are the final CalPERS results for the 2009 State Employees' Food Drive. We do not have the results for the other state departments yet. When we get the overall state numbers we will let you know.
I want to thank all of the those here at CalPERS, who participated in the State Employees' Food Drive this year. Because of you, we were able to donate 41,981.54 pounds of food this year.
Hopefully the economy will be in better shape next year and we will be able to help even more of those less fortunate people in our area.
I also want to thank all of the division food drive, coordinators for their hard work this year, without them we couldn't do what we do here at CalPERS.
Here are the results for the most food and the most food per employee:
Investment Office -- 13,659.94 pounds
