Endiem is proud to be a part of the #GivingTuesdayNow movement. #GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. This new day is organized by GivingTuesday and is in addition to the annually scheduled GivingTuesday that will still take place on December 1, 2020.
The majority of children in Houston ISD qualify for free/subsidized meals and when school is not in session the children’s main food source is gone. Kids’ Meals’ mission is to end childhood hunger by delivering free healthy meals to the doorsteps of Houston’s hungriest preschool-aged children and through collaboration provide their families with resources to help end the cycle of poverty. Known for acting early and in response to the increase of food insecurity with kids out of school during the COVID-19 pandemic, Endiem doubled its monthly donations to Houston Kid’s Meals in March.
Endiem also empowers employees to show their generosity and give back to the community by participating in charitable efforts. Throughout the year the Endiem team is granted paid Volunteer Time Off (VTO). Last week, ADvantage by Endiem analyst Laura Martin used her VTO to bag lunches at Kid’s Meals. And all of our team members have been given an extra half-day of VTO this week in solidarity with #GivingTuesdayNow.
If you’re interested in being a part of #GivingTuesdayNow and need help getting started, the movement’s website has an extensive list of ideas. Kid’s Meals could also always use a helping hand. You can make a difference by volunteering to decorate lunch bags, delivering meals, or packing lunches. As a non-profit, Kids' Meals welcomes monetary donations, every $2 makes and delivers a healthy meal directly to the homes and into the hands of hungry children.
