The law firm of Epstein Becker Green and The Salvation Army of Central Maryland is partnering with Feed the Children, a leading nonprofit organization focused on alleviating childhood hunger, to bring No Hunger Holidays to 400 Baltimore families during the COVID-19 crisis. This event will provide families with much-needed food and essentials Thurs., Nov. 19, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at M&T Bank Stadium (701 W Ostend Street).
Each family, who received a voucher by The Salvation Army of Central Maryland to participate in the event, will receive a 25-pound box of food and a 10-pound box of daily essentials such as shampoo, conditioner, lotion and personal-care items; a box of Avon products and an assortment of books from Disney Publishing Worldwide. This year will surely be the hungriest holiday season on record as the effects of COVID-19 continue to reverberate through our most vulnerable communities. The items provided aim to bring relief to those who are struggling now.
“As part of our firm’s holiday tradition of supporting worthwhile organizations, Epstein Becker Green is proud to contribute to Feed the Children this year,” said James Flynn, Managing Director of Epstein Becker Green. “Because of the COVID-19 crisis, many children and families are at risk of not knowing where their next meal is coming from. With our annual holiday donation this year, we want families to have one less thing to worry about and have more time for joy and hope.”
No Hunger Holidays is a campaign designed to feed families during the holidays, as well as bring awareness to the important issue of childhood hunger. This year’s unparalleled economic suffering will affect the most vulnerable families the most severely as temperatures drop this winter. Feed the Children is working with many corporate and community partners, volunteers and donors to make sure families receive much-needed food and daily essentials just in time for the holiday season.
“Feed the Children is proud to partner with Epstein Becker Greeen and the Salvation Army of Central Maryland to help parents and caregivers who are struggling to feed their families,” said Travis Arnold, Feed the Children president and CEO. “We know that when we combine our efforts, we have a greater impact on the lives of families who need us most—right here in Baltimore.”
“Our partnership with Feed the Children and Epstein Becker Green continues to be a blessing; especially in this incredible moment we are living through as a community and a nation,” said Major Roger Glick, Area Commander for The Salvation Army of Central Maryland. “Despite the hardship, we are grateful to be able to supply those in needs with food, daily essentials and books just in time for the holiday season.”
