UPDATE: Our event was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who participated, shared our posts, and donated to the campaign. Between checks and donations to our GoFundMe page, we raised over $13,000 to help feed families in need in this challenging time. The campaign is open until June 1st so there is still time to donate. Watch the video below to see photos and videos from the event and get information on how to donate.
Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, unemployment is at an all-time high, and more Americans than ever are battling food insecurity. And those of us who still have jobs are going a little stir crazy staying home during the quarantine. So we decided to do something about it. LaPorte is hosting a fundraising event to get our employees and friends moving, all while raising money for Feeding America, a national organization that supports food banks across the country including: Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana (which helps support the Northshore Food Bank), the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, and the Houston Food Bank.
We’re asking our employees (and you!) to get up and get moving, while helping raise money for Feeding America.
Friday, May 15th
12 noon till 12:30 pm
Wherever you want! You can get moving in your living room, your neighborhood, your backyard – anywhere that inspires you to get up and move away from your computer.
