November 30, 2020 CoreNet Philadelphia Gives Back
The CoreNet Global Philadelphia Chapter’s Community Reinvestment Committee organized an event on November 30th at Philabundance’s Hunger Relief Center in South Philadelphia. This year was the chapter’s seventh annual event supporting Philabundance, the region’s largest hunger-relief organization.
Philabundance provides food to 90,000 individuals each week in the Delaware Valley. One in five people in the Philadelphia area faces hunger, of which 30 percent are children, and 16 percent are seniors.
Six volunteers sponsored by CoreNet spend three hours packaging approximately 4,700 lbs. of food products for distribution to neighborhood distribution programs and 350-member agencies including food pantries, shelters, and emergency kitchens in nine counties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The Community Relations Committee will organize another event at Philabundance in 2021.
