Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

The Technology Association of Georgia has announced that Speros, a full-service technology company in Savannah, won Most Points Per Employee and Total Points for the Savannah area in the 3rd annual Bytes for Bites — a two-week fund and food drive competition benefitting Georgia food banks.

Sponsored by the Georgia Food Bank Association, the goal of Bytes for Bites is to help children in food-insecure homes during the summertime when children no longer have access to free or reduced-cost school meals. According to their website, more than 1 in every 4 Georgia kids at risk for hunger.

Competing against two other technology companies in town, Speros was recognized as the winner for the Savannah area. “We used social media and videos to help gain community support,” said Lauren Dingus, the Director of Web Design and Marketing at Speros. “The response we received from our partners, clients and followers was overwhelming. We truly appreciate everyone’s help to make this a success.”

In total, the Georgia Food Bank Association reported nearly $70,000 raised and over 9,000 pounds of food collected in this year’s statewide competition, which is twice as much food as last year.
