England, have announced the launch of theOneinitiative. The two companies are transitioning their corporate charitable efforts into achieving one goal: to provide one million meals annually to hungry children beginning in 2018.
͞ReduĐiŶg the iŵpaĐt of Đhildhood huŶger is ǁhat ǁe hope to aĐĐoŵplish through theOneiŶitiatiǀe,͟ said Josh EŶglaŶd, presideŶt of C.R. EŶglaŶd. ͞We are passioŶate aďout this Đause aŶd ǁaŶt to do our part iŶ helpiŶg to solǀe this proďleŵ in our communities.͟
In order to make a significant impact on this goal, C.R. England and England Logistics are donating proceeds from business transactions to youth meal programs at local food banks across the nation. Both companies have implemented a donation structure that converts profits earned from any business service at either company into proceeds for meals. TheOneefforts ǁill ďe tied to food ďaŶks ǁhere eaĐh of the ĐoŵpaŶies’ offiĐes aŶd driǀers are loĐated toiŶitiatiǀe’s ensure a complete community outreach.
Unique in its involvement opportunities, theOneinitiative invites company employees and drivers, as well as customers, carriers and freight agents to join the fight against childhood hunger.
TheOneinitiative will support food banks close to facilities across the country, with a corporate donation triggered each time a driver delivers a truckload of freight for its customers. At the time of delivery, each driver will designate which of the 19 food banks nationwide to direct a donation. Additionally, throughout the year, both C.R. England and England Logistics locations will hold fund raising events. All money raised will also be donated to local food banks as part of the Oneinitiative. Finally, employees and drivers are encouraged to provide volunteer service hours at local food banks.
Participating food banks includeUtah Food Bank,Atlanta Community Food Bank,Blue Ridge Area Food Bank,Central Pennsylvania Food Bank,Community Food Bank(Fresno, CA),Feeding America Riverside/San Bernardino,Food Bank of Northwest Indiana,Food Bank of the Rockies,Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana,Gleaners Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan,Greater Chicago Food Depository,North Texas Food Bank,Oregon Food Bank,Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York,Second Harvest Inland Northwest,Second Harvest of Southeast North Carolina,South Texas Food Bank,“t. Mary’s Food BaŶk AlliaŶĐe, andVirginia Peninsula Foodbank.
With ties to the food transportation industry and having supported local food banks in many markets nationally in the past, the two companies opted to unite service efforts to benefit a particularly vulnerable demographic benefitting from food banks. According toFeeding America, nearly 13 million children in the U.S. live in households without consistent access to adequate food; one out of every six children nationally. These children also struggle with education and overall development as a result of malnutrition.
The invitation to donate is also extended to the public. Every donation leads directly to a food insecure child receiving a meal. TheOneinitiative is founded on the idea that through unity, a nationwide difference can be made. Each person is invited to unite with this cause and change the humbling statistics that are a result of childhood hunger.
