As part of our first KeHE Employee Trip to the Field, team members from across our organization traveled to Honduras with Compassion International to experience first-hand the transformative impact of our support.
“I love that I work for a company with real soul and passion for doing good in the world – especially serving those in need.”
– Chris Mason, Sr. Director of Human Resources, Naperville, IL
Changing Lives in Honduras
KeHE has an active presence in Honduras through our serving work with Mission Lazarus and our partnership with Compassion. Compassion has been working in Honduras, the second poorest country in Latin America, since 1974 and more than 54,000 children attend Compassion child development centers like the ones being funded by KeHE.
Through our partnership with Compassion International, every employee has the opportunity to get involved and change lives. Some employees have chosen to become Compassion sponsors and KeHE is providing every employee with a 50% match toward the monthly cost of sponsorship.
“Happy isn’t a strong enough word to describe how anyone would feel when seeing the child you are sponsoring in a better place just because you write a letter and the little bit of money you donate – it all makes a huge impact. It gives you a different feeling and view about the work we do here at KeHE.”
– Jesus Hurtado, OPS Trainer, DC 18, Romeoville
