HIGHLIGHT DONATES $10,000 DOLLARS TO FEEDING AMERICA AND DONATES 1,500 ITEMS IN VIRTUAL FOOD DRIVE EVENT
According to Feeding America, an estimated 35 million Americans were living in food-insecure households before the COVID-19 pandemic. This number was expected to exceed 50 million by the end of 2020.
One of Highlight’s core values is to make a difference through community service. As a part of our Highlight Cares Initiative, Highlight held our first virtual food drive to encourage food donations across the country. In the month-long food drive, the team contributed a combination of physical canned foods and monetary donations to a total of 1,526 items across 15 states.
To further our positive impact, Highlight has donated $10,000 dollars to Feeding America. For each dollar donated, 10 meals are provided to those in need. In a combined effort of the corporate donation and team’s food drive, we have donated 115,000 meals across America!
Highlight thanks to all the employees who contributed to the food drive. Highlight understands community members have been affected differently by the Covid-19 pandemic and hopes that these donations will help those affected during these challenging times.
“This is a difficult time for so many people, and I’m pleased and grateful that so many Highlight team members were willing to contribute to food banks in their respective communities. I’m also grateful that Highlight was able to provide a financial contribution to Feeding America, to help families have the food they need” said Highlight CEO, Rebecca Andino.
