Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
Didriks, a local retailer of outdoor furniture and home furnishings announced that they will donate five percent of in-store and online sales during the month of February to Cambridge, MA nonprofit Food For Free. This will be Didriks’ sixth annual fundraiser to benefit Food For Free, an organization that collects fresh food and distributes it through the emergency food system to the needy in the Cambridge community. In the previous 5 years of this campaign, Didriks has donated more than $22,000 to Food For Free, further enabling them to expand outreach and assistance efforts.
Didriks and Food For Free invite their customers and the public to an in-store kickoff party for the month-long campaign from 5-8pm on Thursday February 6, 2014. Catering for the event will be provided by Season to Taste Catering.
Food for Free Executive Director, Sasha Purpura, said, “We are excited to partner with Didriks for the sixth year in a row to host this event and month-long campaign. We appreciate the continued support, and really value this relationship, as it helps to bring awareness to our cause and the hunger issues in our local community.”
Jonathan Henke, owner of Didriks, said, “Our team at Didriks is proud to host this event and to continue our support of Food For Free. They are doing great work, and strong partnerships between local business and local outreach help make Cambridge a stronger community.”
