PLEASANTON, Calif., Jan. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Global transportation and logistics services firm D.W. Morgan expects to donate 50,000 meals to starving kids around the world through its second annual campaign to fight hunger, Morgan Delivers for Starving Kids.
In February, Morgan will donate six meals for each shipment it delivers through its supply chain. Morgan's goal is to provide 50,000 meals to starving children via nonprofit partner Feed My Starving Children, a 501(c)(3) organization focused on providing critical meals to children in the neediest regions in Africa, Asia and the Americas. Last year, Morgan delivered over 47,000 meals through the same program, exceeding its company goal by over 15,000.
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) distributes meals in more than 60 countries through missionary partnerships at orphanages, schools, clinics, refugee camps and malnourishment centers. Of all donations to FMSC, 94 percent goes directly toward the feeding program. In the 2009 fiscal year, the organization brought more than 78 million meals to children around the world.
"Our one-month program gives us the chance to make a lifetime of difference for children who need it the most," said David W. Morgan, CEO and founder of D.W. Morgan Company. "Delivering critically-needed meals to this population is our investment in the future."
Morgan's corporate donation based on February shipments will be supplemented with additional fund-raising efforts via social media and a microsite -- Morgan Delivers -- throughout February.
Morgan Delivers for Starving Kids is part of D.W. Morgan's larger corporate social responsibility program. The company supports a broad array of initiatives, with a particular focus on children, social services, education and minority business development.
