New York, NY (PRWEB) January 04, 2012
Acclaro, a premier translation services agency, celebrated the spirit of the holidays this year by donating $1,000 to local food banks in each of the major urban centers where it has an office.
The Food Bank for Westchester
The Food Bank for Westchester distributes food to 227 frontline hunger-relief programs throughout the county and helps feed the nearly 200,000 children, seniors and family members who are hungry or at risk of hunger. They deliver 10 to 12 tons of food a day and more than seven million pounds of food each year to Westchester residents.
Open Table Maynard
Open Table offers weekly community supper programs and pantries in Concord and Maynard, Massachusetts to more than 225 guests, including many children. Beyond providing food resources, they also work to build a community of support for their guests who face many challenges associated with poverty, using discretionary funds when necessary and helping them access a local support network.
The San Francisco Food Bank
The San Francisco Food Bank collects millions of pounds of food from growers, packers, processors, manufacturers, the USDA and grocery stores. The food collected supplies 400+ local nonprofit organizations, including over 200 neighborhood pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, homeless shelters and youth programs. It is also prepared at soup kitchens and packaged into bag lunches for school and summer programs. In all, over 200,000 people are fed by this program each year.
“We´re grateful to be able to contribute to the fight against hunger in our local communities,” says Acclaro President Michael Kriz. “We are all fortunate to live and work in prosperous regions. Our hope is that this small contribution will make a tangible difference in the lives of local families.”
