Help Us In the Fight Against Hunger in Pennsylvania!
By Brooke Drake, October 9, 2012, Charity & Community
Bounce Energy regularly gives back to our community whenever we can, that’s why we pick a local charity every month and work on raising awareness and funds for that charity. Now that we’ve started servicing electricity in Pennsylvania, we plan to start giving back to that community. That’s why this month, in addition to supporting a Houston charity, we’re also supporting two additional charities in Pennsylvania!
Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is a non-profit organization that collects and distributes food through a 380+ member network in 11 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania. The Food Bank currently distributes around 27 million pounds of food per year through outlets such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, after school programs, neighborhood food assistance agencies, emergency or disaster-related feeding sites, Meals on Wheels, and many more.
After teaming up with the Philadelphia Food Bank in 2005, Philabundance is now the region’s largest hunger relief organization. The organization addresses hunger through direct service programs and a network of 500 member agencies, as well as through contributions to a broad spectrum of social services through food cupboards, emergency kitchens, shelters, senior centers, and beyond.
