Charleston, SC: In the spirit of giving back, VetFriends.com has announced the launch of a large-scale Thanksgiving food drive to help offset challenges faced by beneficiaries of One80 Place (formerly known as Crisis Ministries). VetFriends expects this food drive to result in thousands of donated non-perishable food items, with every item purchased from their catalog matched with one canned good. The Mount Pleasant, SC based company has experienced tremendous growth over the last two years and hopes to leverage their success to make an impact locally with the development of this partnership. VetFriends.com welcomes more than 400,000 visitors to their site each month, and has encouraged their more than 1.7 Million members to participate in this monumental drive.
“We are proud to be a part of the Charleston community and recognize our responsibility to give back locally” said Mr. Sutcliffe, VetFriends.com CEO and Founder. “Every day, our business celebrates the pride and service of veterans and their families, but that doesn’t stop with our members and customers. We are committed to supporting those less fortunate in times of need, through the support of local and national nonprofits.”
In addition to their support of One80 Place, VetFriends staff dedicates volunteer time at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center each month. With expanded community initiatives, VetFriends is committed to making tangible changes in the lives of community members. To learn more, visit https://www.vetfriends.com/togetherwecan.
