As a for-profit business, donating to worthy causes is what it’s all about to us. And No Kid Hungry is definitely that.
We’ve been part of Team No Kid Hungry for just over a year now. Team No Kid Hungry is a national campaign run by Share Our Strength, a nonprofit org working to solve problems of hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world. After 25 years of successfully investing in local nonprofits and helping find the best approaches to eradicating poverty and hunger, Share Our Strength launched No Kid Hungry in 2010.
Within the last year we have donated a percentage of our profits, just over $12,000 to date. One of the great things about this organization is their communication with us on how our funds are being utilized.
After our most recent donation, our project manager, Emily Palmer, let us know that our donation came at a crucial time of year. It would go directly to kids and the communities that feed them. “We’ve put it straight to work to feed kids this summer and into the new school year,” said Emily.
She went on to say, “Feeding kids can be daunting during these challenging times. We’re heartened by you and many others who have stepped in to help. Help that has made it possible for us, since the onset of the pandemic, to provide almost $121 million in emergency feeding grants and related technical support to over 2,600 partner schools and community groups across the country. Our partners have reported back to us that they’ve served more than 1.9 million meals. The need continues, and we can continue to be there with a helping hand because of your caring support."
CSB as a company is committed to working with two pro-bono clients per year (who meet our criteria), and we are proud to have added several new organizations to support this year, including the following: Sam & Devorah Foundation for Transgender Youth, Live Out Loud, PFLAG New York City, Long Beach Humane Society, Astoria Felvie Club, Bronx Colony Cats, NYC Pet Nanny, and Flatbush Cats.
We are continuing to add more to our roster to include organizations that are important to our CSB team members.
As a small business, we’re doing our best to support other small businesses and to give to organizations in need.
What could be better than that?
