VoIP Supply Donates Meals to Buffalo City Mission with Each Online Order

"We have worked hard to do well, serve our customers, pay our bills, employ our people, grow and improve. We have worked hard so that we may help others and not just ourselves." - Ben Sayers, VoIP Supply CEO

Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) May 25, 2013

Since Thanksgiving of last year, VoIP Supply has been donating $1.98 to the Buffalo City Mission for every order placed online through the company's website.

For that small amount the Buffalo City Mission can fill an empty plate, transform lives, and provide hope for the many faces of homelessness.

People may not realize that donating a good meal is a simple way to start a domino effect of positive change. So, VoIP Supply has been encouraging online customers to match the company's $1.98 donation from their order when they checkout.

An anonymous party recently donated 2,000 meals to take advantage of VoIP Supply's matching offer which resulted in 4,000 meals in a single day.

Thanks to that anonymous gift, VoIP Supply has now donated a total of 8,000 meals in the company's Feed the Homeless campaign.

"We have worked hard to do well, serve our customers, pay our bills, employ our people, grow and improve," said Ben Sayers, CEO of VoIP Supply. We have worked hard so that we may help others and not just ourselves."

"When I was a kid I was taught by my parents, as they lead by example, to wait for those behind you and hold the door so they may pass with a little less effort," said Sayers. "It isn't just the physical door that needs to be held open, sometimes the "door" is an opportunity given, a pair of shoes or something as simple as a meal."

Sayers has positioned VoIP Supply as a company that cares about more than just the bottom line, stressing the importance of helping to put food in the mouths of those with so much less.

Help the Buffalo City Mission with their Summer Matching Gift Challenge. From now until May 31, 2013, every $1.98 donated is doubled to provide two meals. For more information or, to make a donation, please visit https://www.buffalocitymission.org/donate.
