Health and wellness company will donate a total of $100,000 to 10 food banks across the country
(PORTLAND, Ore.) – In an effort to replenish the food supply at local food pantries after the holiday season, AdvoCare International, LP (AdvoCare), a premier health and wellness company, today announced a contribution of $10,000 to Oregon Food Bank. For the third year in a row, the Oregon Food Bank network distributed more than 1 million emergency food boxes to those in need.
This is one of 10 donations to be made in 10 cities across the U.S. coinciding with AdvoCare Regional Success School events, which aim to educate and inspire AdvoCare Independent Distributors. The goal of this $100,000 total contribution is to help replenish the food supply at local food pantries after the holiday season, which often leaves food supplies low.
“Giving back is at the heart of our mission at AdvoCare, not only during certain seasons, but also year round,” said Allison Levy, VP and Chief Legal Officer for AdvoCare. “We are proud to partner with Oregon Food Bank and provide them with $10,000 in support of the essential role they play to feed local families in need.”
This donation to Oregon Food Bank follows a $20,000 contribution made by AdvoCare in the spring of last year, as part of the company’s 20th anniversary celebration and in an effort to give back to the communities it serves.
"We are very grateful for AdvoCare’s $10,000 donation and continued support," said Susannah Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of Oregon Food Bank. “The winter months can be some of the toughest for those who are hungry. During the months following the holidays, we see a drop in donations and AdvoCare’s contribution will truly make an impact during a time of year when we need help the most.”
