Warming More Than Just Feet This Season with the Vermont Foodbank
For the second year in a row, we are humbled by our customers’ support and participation in Giving Tuesday. You all showed up in a major way when we told you we would be donating 100% of our profits to the Vermont Foodbank on November 27, 2018. We are truly grateful for all your support and with your help, we were able to provide 46,760 meals to Vermonters who need nourishment.
In addition to the monetary donation from Giving Tuesday, a team of Darn Tough employees volunteered our time at the Foodbank on December 4. In a single morning, we packed 245 boxes for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), which is 8,085 pounds or 6,737 meals for Vermonters facing hunger. We also sorted an astounding 26,000 pounds of meat! There are now 245 older adults who will be receiving nourishing food for this coming month as a result.
As the snow falls, the weather gets colder and the holidays are on the horizon, you helped us give Vermont community members in need the gift of food in the pantry and of a meal on the table at night. Thank you.
