Newegg donates $75,000 to No Kid Hungry to help combat childhood hunger

Los Angeles, CA, 2017-Sep-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — Newegg, the leading tech-focused e-retailer in North America and a growing force in global e-commerce, today announced that it made a $75,000 donation to No Kid Hungry to help combat childhood hunger. The donation follows the conclusion of Newegg’s previously announced donor-match campaign to help raise funds to support No Kid Hungry’s mission of feeding kids in need.

“Newegg’s generosity comes at a critical time, as recent natural disasters have increased the urgency of our work, especially in the Southeastern United States,” said Jill Davis, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at No Kid Hungry. “Now more than ever we need to give families the means to provide healthy, nourishing meals for their children.”

No Kid Hungry – a campaign of national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength? – connects children in need to programs like school breakfasts and summer meals, and teaches low-income families to cook healthy, affordable foods. No Kid Hungry works closely with organizations such as Newegg to help communities feed children in need every day of the year.

Newegg’s donation of $75,000 translates into 750,000 meals for kids around the nation. And in the past several weeks, No Kid Hungry has been working directly with relief organizations in Texas and Florida to serve displaced residents and others who are in need of assistance. Newegg’s contribution to No Kid Hungry helps to support these efforts.

“Newegg is proud to support No Kid Hungry and help feed those in need, especially in light of recent events,” said Danny Lee, CEO at Newegg. “We are pleased that our contribution – along with individual contributions from our customers – will be put to good use.”
