Proofpoint Earns Second Harvest Food Bank’s Blue Diamond Award for Third Consecutive Year

Every day more than 1,500 Proofpoint employees worldwide work to keep organizations protected from the latest cyber threats—and that mission also extends into philanthropic efforts as our global offices work to better our communities. We are pleased to announce the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties has awarded Proofpoint with the organization’s Blue Diamond Award for the third consecutive year. In 2016, our employees and contractors collectively raised more than $26,000, which equates to more than 52,250 meals to help local families. 

Backed by Proofpoint-sponsored events throughout the year and executive matching programs, our team is steadfastly committed to ending hunger in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties where one in every 10 people receive food from Second Harvest, one of the largest food banks in the U.S. Our surrounding community is exceptionally important to our employees and that importance underscores many of our contribution efforts.

We are very proud to work with the extraordinary team at the Second Harvest Food Bank and support its vision for a hunger-free community.
