On a recent trip to Chicago, we had the pleasure of visiting two hunger related charities to learn more about their individual missions and to take the opportunity to take a photo with members of their staff to acknowledge the total donations we have made to each of them since our inception in 2006.
We started the day with Katie Jozwik at Feeding America, a very worthwhile national hunger related charity, which has been a popular cause selected by our customers to receive our donation as a result of their order. We are proud to say that we have donated nearly $22,000.00 to Feeding America, the equivalent of over 195,000 meals.
We also met with Kelly Klein at The Greater Chicago Food depository. She graciously gave us a tour of their massive operation that provides food those in need throughout the greater Chicago region. We were very impressed with the size and quality of the operation as well as the level of organization and cleanliness at the facility. Customers in the greater Chicago area have selected them to receive our donation and to date we have donated just under $4,000 to them.
