On September 15, 2017, the Wholesale Warranties team geared up for a volunteer shift at our local Feeding San Diego food bank. At Wholesale Warranties, we have always believed that what makes a company great is not purely their size or success, but the way in which they impact their community. We do our best to stay involved in local and national causes, and could not think of a better place to donate our time than Feeding San Diego.
1 in 5 children struggle with hunger in San Diego County, and our shift at the food bank was dedicated to these kids. As a team, we packed 775 BackPack bags for these kids to take home on a Friday afternoon. These bags contain staple items as well as fresh produce, and ensure that kids struggling with hunger will have food for the weekend when they do not have access to school lunches.
Feeding San Diego serves over 63,000 children, families and seniors facing hunger each and every week. We are so proud to have been even a small part of the wonderful efforts they make for our local community–and I can assure, we will be back!
