Promotion in Motion Inc. in Somerset donated 1.2 million pouches of Welch’s Fruit Snacks to Feeding America, which delivered the snacks to food bank locations in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
“During the challenging and unprecedented times we are facing, all of us need to contribute,” said Promotion In Motion Chief Executive Officer Michael Rosenberg in a statement. “Food banks are struggling to keep stock, so providing our beloved Welch’s Fruit Snacks, which are made with real fruit and are an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and E, to those in need, including our closest neighbors, was something all of us at PIM knew could make a difference.”
PIM also made a cash contribution to the Franklin Township Food Bank to help it acquire groceries, vegetables and other necessities.
Feeding America reportedly expects an increase of 17 million Americans who will face hunger in the next six months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
