MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- DealDash, the popular online auctions and e-commerce company, recently announced that it is donating 24,447 meals to families across America in their effort to fight the growing hunger crisis.
This generous donation is the result of a week-long charity drive where DealDash would donate one meal for every purchase made. To pull off this ambitious promotion, DealDash pledged to donate to the US hunger relief agency Feeding America.
"I am very proud of our Team, our customers, and our partners for making this donation possible," said Pasi Lohi, CEO of DealDash. "When we announced our pledge of matching each purchase with a meal donation, our customers responded in a big way and the result is better than we could have imagined."
The coronavirus pandemic has created a hunger crisis in America where over 50 million Americans are facing food insecurity, according to statistics provided by Feeding America. Many households that experience food scarcity do not qualify for federal relief and must rely on local food banks and hunger relief organizations for support. Making the situation even more dire is the fact that 17 million of the people who face food scarcity are children.
These statistics indicate that now is the time to take action against this growing problem by shining a light on the issue and donating time and resources when possible.
Supporting local communities and small business owners has always been an important part of DealDash's mission. DealDash took out a full-page ad in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal reaching out to small business owners affected by the pandemic and offering help with moving excess inventory. DealDash also partners with brands that strengthen their local communities via charitable donations and committing to be environmentally friendly.
