When we started WFH Care Package, we had two missions equally at the heart of our initiative. Our WFH Care Packages create a way to boost morale and provide a source of connection among employees entering WFH environments due to COVID-19. Through the purchase of each package, we committed to supporting communities by donating financially to nonprofits actively working to alleviate the impacts of COVID-19.
After shipping over 500 WFH Care Packages, we've been able to fund donations to two nonprofits. And we've only just begun!
Seeing the impacts of COVID-19 in our surrounding community, we sought out an organization in our city of San Francisco. Through our donation to the SF-Marin Food Bank, we have supplied 1,700 meals to households within San Francisco and Marin. Due to COVID-19, the SF-Marin Food Bank is now serving 20,000 more households each week, and they anticipate that number will continue to rise as unemployment reaches staggering heights. The SF-Marin Food Bank powers a number of programs including CalFresh Outreach, Farm to Family, Home-Delivered Groceries to neighbors with disabilities, and Neighborhood Pantries.
As COVID-19 continues to take a devastating toll on NYC, we're in discussions daily with New York employers from schools to tech companies looking for ways to support their team. Therefore, we set out to find a NYC-based nonprofit taking action against COVID-19 and supporting their community. Food Bank for New York City, the city's leading hunger-relief organization, is providing emergency food to vulnerable New Yorkers challenged by the impacts of COVID-19. Since the start of Food Bank for New York City's emergency relief, they have provided over 5 million meals to people in need. The number of people turning to Food Bank for NYC's emergency food network has increased by 50%, as the city experiences shuttered businesses, closed schools, and lost wages. WFH Care Package's donation will support 3,750 meals to New York City residents.
We are excited to continue supporting nonprofits on the frontlines of helping our challenged communities during this time! As we continue shipping WFH Care Packages to employees, we plan to grow our contributions to make as big of an impact as possible.
