Give the Gift of Food This #GivingTuesday
We’re in the throes of the holiday giving season and we’re excited to be a part of it. This year, Partnership With Native Americans (PWNA) is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to promote philanthropy and generosity around the world. Held annually on the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the holiday giving season, inspiring people to collaborate on improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to charities and causes they support.
Funds raised through the Newman’s Own Foundation Challenge will be put toward PWNA’s food and water initiatives, supplying food boxes for pantries, serving individual families in need and preparing hot meals for Native American communities living in poverty or “food deserts.”
Additionally, working with Soup.Box.Love, PWNA can extend the gift of Thanksgiving meals to Native American Elders, when you purchase quinoa corn chili soup from Soup.Box.Love between Nov. 1 and Nov. 30.
While November ushers in the #GivingTuesday season, it is also American Indian Heritage Month and Soup.Box.Love is honoring Native heritage and history by donating proceeds from the sale of its November soup – quinoa corn chili – to PWNA’s food initiatives.
PWNA is grateful to have been selected for the Newman’s Challenge and for the Soup.Box.Love remembrance of Native Americans. These potential funds are critical for us to carry out our mission of championing hope for the 60 remote, isolated and impoverished reservations we serve, and improving food security and quality of life for the Native Americans living there.
Philanthropy, charity and giving starts at home. Consider the comforts of home you value – food and water, particularly – and extend those same comforts to the 250,000 Native Americans PWNA serves. Help us achieve our challenge goals. Visit www.crowdrise.com/pwna4hope and make a donation between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, or visit www.soupboxlove.com and purchase their November soup. Your gift will touch the lives of Native Americans in need.
