Redwood City, Calif., May 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- News Facts:
What: Informatica, the world’s No. 1 provider of data management solutions, today announced that it is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties to Stand Up for Kids. During this year’s Informatica World, which takes place May 23-26, at Moscone West in San Francisco, conference participants will gather to put together 3,000 snack bags filled with healthy treats to help ensure Bay Area kids don’t go hungry. The snack bags will include turkey jerky, peanut butter and whole wheat crackers, veggie chips, fruit cups and animal crackers.
Who: Informatica World 2016 participants – executives, employees, customers and partners
Why: Hunger can have devastating consequences for children. Studies show that kids who don’t get enough to eat can suffer emotional and physical effects that hamper their ability to do well in school and succeed later in life. Despite the enormous wealth in Silicon Valley, one in three local kids is at risk for hunger. That’s why Second Harvest Food Bank has launched its Stand Up for Kids Campaign.
Informatica may be about all things data, but the company is also all about people—employees, customers, partners, and those who need help in the neighborhoods we live in as well as the global community. Informatica Involved shows Informatica’s passion for improving people’s lives in local neighborhoods and the global community.
When: Tuesday, May 24, 2016 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm PT
Where: Moscone West, First Level, Solutions Expo area
