Last month we donated 500 healthy snacks to the Columbus House outreach and engagement programs in New Haven, CT. Outreach & Engagement programs offer services to clients who are literally homeless, by reaching out to them wherever they are living.
When we found we had the opportunity to get $10 Subway gift cards through our Fed-X rewards program, we knew just what to do with them, and donated them to Columbus House!
This is a great example of how local business can have an impact in their communities without spending a lot of money. We ship regularly with Fed-X, and they offer their business customers a reward program in return. It’s a great incentive program. When we saw we had enough points to redeem for 10 gift cards, we knew just what to do with them, to do the most good.
Even smaller donations like this can have a big impact. We hope other companies will get creative about ways they can help support their communities.
