Philabundance’s mission is simple: “We seek to drive hunger from our communities today and end hunger forever.” As the largest hunger relief organization in the Delaware Valley, with thousands of people supporting its efforts, the organization embodies this mission wholeheartedly. Philabundance is part of the Feeding America initiative—a nationwide food bank network helping the fight against hunger in America.
Their impact is significant—here are some 2017 stats from the Philabundance website that prove it:
- 33,000 children a week received the fresh, healthy food they needed to thrive and grow.
- About 1.7 million pounds of shelf-stable items came in through food drives.
- 40,000+ individual donors helped feed 90,000 neighbors a week.
Here at ReminderMedia, we’ve partnered with Philabundance to help raise money for this important cause. We have internally raised $2,450 and the company is matching that contribution (and donating slightly more), which will make our total donation $5,000 this year.
Over 30 members of the ReminderMedia team went to Philabundance last year to volunteer, helping build senior boxes and working in the freezers. Donating our time to this important organization was a great experience and we learned a lot about its efforts. To learn more about what Philabundance is doing, get involved at www.philabundance.org.
