Open the Door to Thankful with Schwan’s and Feeding America
I often see the Schwan delivery trucks outside of my neighbors’ homes … and the vision of food delivered straight to their doors has me intrigued. It’s like a combination of retro and modern, harking back to the days of milkmen while also playing into the modern-day desire to have everything ordered online and shipped to you. This contemporary service recently received a few extra gold stars in my book because they are no longer just delivering food to my neighbors. Schwan’s Home Service has partnered with Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization, and will deliver up to 500,000 meals to those in need, too!
Beginning today, as part of their “Open the Door to Thankful” campaign, anyone can visit the Schwan’s™ Facebook page, share what makes them feel thankful, and in return, Schwan’s Home Service will donate FIVE more meals to Feeding America. Just because of shared thankfulness, and in addition to the 250,000 meals that they’ve already donated, a major difference will be made for the children and families struggling with hunger.
On “Thankful Thursdays,” the number doubles to 10 meals donated for every thankful share.
As Mike Gerend, president of Schwan’s Home Service, says, “Sometimes, instead of feeling grateful for the important people or things in our lives, we take them for granted. Now, we invite people everywhere to take the time to stop and remember something for which they are thankful, share it, and, in the process, join us to help solve hunger.”
If you’d like to be a part of this, you can share your own thankful on the Open the Door to Thankful app on Facebook.
