ST. JOSEPH COUNTY -

It was a day to pay it forward for hundreds of people.

Press Ganey Wednesday allowed its 500 employees to volunteer at different organizations across the area as part of its "Day of Service."

WSBT caught up with some volunteers at the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.

"Our business is actually giving 2,000 community service hours (today)," said Amber Farmer of Press Ganey. "So, we've actually taken a day of business and given it to the community instead of our own business needs and trying to help out in any way we can."

Press Ganey paid its employees Wednesday if they volunteered for one of the organizations. They hope to do this again next year.
