Did you know that 1 in 8 people in the United States struggles with hunger? That means that more than 38 million Americans, including 12 million children, don’t have enough food to lead a healthy life.
About Feeding America
Fortunately, there are organizations like Feeding America that are working to end hunger in our country. Feeding America is the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States, and they provide food to millions through a network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs. Luckily, one of those programs is right here in the Santa Ana area!
Dial One Cares
We at Dial One Sonshine were excited to make Feeding America one of its candidates for the Dial One Cares program.
“I’m grateful to be in a position and have the opportunity to give back to our friends and neighbors right here in Orange County,” says Ken Elowe, President of Dial One Sonshine.
In launching the Dial One Cares program, we put out a survey to all of our customers. We asked customers, which cause are you most passionate about? And we said, we will donate a portion of every service call to the charity that receives the most votes.
As you can see, Feeding America was the winner by a large margin!
Dial One and Feeding America
Dial One Sonshine has partnered with Feeding America and will take a portion from every service call or tune-up, and donate it. That means that when you choose Dial One Sonshine, you’re also helping to fight hunger in our community! According to the Feeding America website, every dollar donated to them helps them to “secure and distribute at least 12 pounds of food (10 average-sized meals).” Wow!
We’re proud to be able to give back to the community that we have served for 30 years, and we hope that you will join us in supporting this important cause. Together, we can make a difference!
