...hunger has no place in a child's life
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (PRWEB) March 06, 2015
The team at SignUpGenius, the leading online signup provider, makes it part of their business to give back to communities at the local, national, and global levels. The group recently helped Loaves & Fishes sort and pack some of the 260,000 pounds of food gathered by the Scouting for Food event.
“SignUpGenius is happy to be a part of the Loaves & Fishes mission to provide nutritious groceries to people within our own community who are facing hardships,” notes Betsy Lytle, Support Specialist at SignUpGenius, who organized the opportunity for the staff.
In 2014, Loaves & Fishes provided groceries to 78,602 people. Children make up 48% of those fed by the nonprofit. “We believe hunger has no place in a child’s life,” says Valerie Crockett, Volunteer Coordinator at Loaves & Fishes.
With philanthropy primarily focusing on vulnerable or at-risk children, SignUpGenius contributes both time and funds to assist various causes, including Bright Blessings, African Christians Fellowship International (ACFI), Samaritan’s Purse, and Brookstone Schools. Several times a year the entire staff serves at a local nonprofit organization.
The company also supports schools and education by awarding funds through partnerships and contest giveaways on SignUpGenius.com.
