Paycom employees donate to Goodwill

Employees of Paycom Software Inc. donated 3,983 pounds of gently used clothing to Goodwill Industries of Central Oklahoma this week as part of its National Payroll Week activities, the Oklahoma City-based human resources software company said Friday.

Paycom’s nearly 2-ton gift was raised as employees weighed their donations to earn points for their favorite Paycom payroll week team, with each pound of clothing equaling one point. The donations consisted of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, shoes and accessories, as well as small housewares and appliances.

“We are so grateful to the employees at Paycom for stepping up in such a big way for this donation drive,” said Mark Barth, CEO of Goodwill Industries of Central Oklahoma. “Your generosity is paid forward in the community in so many ways. Without the help of incredible community partners like Paycom, we couldn’t fulfill our mission to help people overcome challenges to employment.”
