Oklahoma City — Just Born, Inc. is joining forces with Feed the Children, a nonprofit focused on alleviating childhood hunger, to deliver clothing and school supplies to children across the U.S. as part of the nonprofit’s annual No Hunger Holidays campaign. Throughout the holiday season, the organizations will distribute school supplies and $200,000 worth of children’s apparel at community events.
The holiday program provides shelf-stable food, essential household items, books and toys to ease parents’ budgets so they can provide food for their kids. At each community event, families receive a 25-pound box of shelf-stable food; a 15-pound box of personal-care items; and additional items including books, school supplies, toys and clothing.
“Just Born Quality Confections is committed to bringing sweetness to people’s lives,” says Meg Dowd, corporate affairs manager for Just Born. “For many years, we’ve been proud to partner with Feed the Children to help end childhood hunger. It’s especially sweet to work with them on their No Hunger Holidays campaign.”
“It is only through partnership that we can reach at-risk families this holiday season,” adds Travis Arnold, president and CEO of Feed the Children. “Through our partnership with Just Born Quality Confections, we can support America’s most vulnerable during these difficult times, providing much-needed school supplies and essential clothing. No child should go without during a season of warmth. Now is the time to come together to serve the children and families who need us most.”
