Did you know that today in America more than 41 million people face hunger? Hunger doesn’t discriminate and it affects every single community across the U.S.
For its 2018 charity of focus Eastridge employees voted to support Feeding America, an organization that supports over 46 million people who face food insecurity across the country. Feeding America is the leading hunger-relief organization in the county and in the last year alone they provided 25.2 million meals to those in need. Through innovative programs and collaborative partnerships, Feeding America serves 63,000 children, families and seniors each week.
On June 9th, Eastridge concluded its first food drive for Feeding America. From California to Nevada and Massachusetts employees across every office location competed to see who could collect the most food items. Upon completion of the food drive, 30 employee volunteers then delivered and packaged the donated goods on-site at Feeding America’s San Diego location.
Eastridge employees collected and donated 856 pounds of food!
There’s a lot of big hearts at Eastridge and we celebrate the opportunity to serve the needs of our communities - especially one as impactful as Feeding America. Stay tuned for our next volunteer event, because we’re only getting started!
