Join America's Charities, now through December, as we highlight different nonprofits and share how individuals and companies can Shape the Future of various causes through workplace giving programs.
What does Feed the Children do?
This can be best explained using the word FEED-
- FOOD for hungry children
- EDUCATION to help break the cycle of hunger and poverty
- ESSENTIALS for living, such as personal-care products and household supplies
- DISASTER relief for families in crisis after natural and man-made disasters strike
Hunger directly strikes families and children not only in the United States, but also around the world. Hunger also strikes some indirectly, making them aware of the daily struggle their family, friends, neighbors and others may face. No one wants to see a child suffer from anything, especially hunger.
If these concerns are not dealt with, the results are damaging. First, if children and families are not fed properly, they will continue to experience all the tough effects of malnutrition. Second, without sufficient education, children become adults who continue to live in poverty, which results in more hunger, illness and sometimes crime. Third, when families don’t receive the essentials of living, they are unable to maintain proper hygiene, which brings all the ramifications that will result from that condition. And finally, without disaster relief, fewer people will receive the help they so critically need.
With the help of people just like you, Feed the Children can continue its work to feed bodies, minds and futures. Each $1 you send will be stretched to have the impact of $5! Thank you from the families we serve together.
