Serving Lunch. Serving Families Affected by HIV.


inferno recently welcomed Craig Locke, Director of Development at Hope House, as the speaker at our 2nd Fuelanthropic Lunch and Learn event. Fuelanthropic is the community service initiative for inferno, encouraging each of our employees to serve a part of the community they’re passionate about.

Craig talked to inferno employees about Hope House, a Memphis-based organization that assists children and families affected by HIV and AIDS. Hope House was the employee-chosen company charity for 2012, and we decided to continue sponsoring Hope House in 2013 through fundraising, donating supplies, participating in events, and sponsoring families.

In addition to speaking about Hope House’s mission, Craig encouraged us to get involved through the Buddy program at Hope House and other events throughout the year. You can find out more about Hope House at

The Fuelanthropic Lunch and Learn is our chance to recognize new Fuelanthropic members and give employees a chance to share stories about how they’re using their time in the community. And, of course, enjoy a meal together.

In addition to Craig’s presentation, our own Lindsey Woodard and Liza Routh shared how they’ve been making a difference in their adopted organizations. Our employees have really been going above and beyond for the last few years. And this year, we’ve already logged over 100 hours of service, making it clear that 2013 will be another great year of service for inferno.

Way to go, everyone! Thanks for all of your efforts and community involvement.
