JCPenney Supports No Kid Hungry Campaign
JCPenney will be supporting Share Our Strength, an organization helping to end childhood hunger in America. From Nov. 1-22, JCPenney customers can join JCPenney in its support by rounding up their store purchases to the nearest whole dollar to support Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign.
"More than 16 million kids in America live in households that struggle to put food on the table," said Miki Woodard, president of JCP cares and vice president of philanthropy for JCPenney. "As families prepare for their annual Thanksgiving feasts this November, hunger prevention is a cause that will be top of mind for our customers. By simply rounding up their purchases at jcpenney, customers can make a huge difference in ensuring every kid in America gets the food they need."
Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in the nation by ensuring that all children receive healthy food every day. Committed to creating nurturing environments where kids are able to learn, grow and thrive with healthy food choices, the campaign connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
"While most of us will be giving thanks for the abundant food on our tables this holiday season, there are nearly one in five children in our nation who struggle with hunger," said Billy Shore, founder and CEO of Share Our Strength. "We know it doesn't have to be that way. By making its own substantial donation and encouraging customers to follow suit, jcpenney is making a dedicated commitment to end child hunger in America. Together, we will work to make sure no child goes hungry this holiday season and all year round."
JCPenney customers can also support Share Our Strength through a dedicated JCP cares page on the social media platform BroadCause.com and through the Facebook social game, WeTopia. Furthermore, customers can make donations to Share Our Strength online at jcp.com/jcpcares and find more information about jcpenney's philanthropic commitments.
