My favorite part of working at Cheeky is that we’re creating a new way for people to help combat hunger everyday. Volunteering is another great way to get involved. That’s why the Cheeky team zipped over to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank a few weeks ago. Spending time on the floor of the food bank helped me appreciate all the moving pieces that go into providing meals and support. And there are a lot of moving pieces!
Total coincidence, our team was asked to sort through paper products donated by Target! It may not be obvious at first, but many people in need of food assistance are also in need of toiletries and home goods. Food can be purchased with food stamps, but products like toilet paper and soap can’t, so they’re in high demand.
The day at the LA Regional Food Bank was a proud one. Meeting the Food Bank staff confirmed Feeding America really makes the most of every donation. Sorting through items from Target solidified that Cheeky has a fantastic partner in Target. And wearing our Cheeky t-shirts established that many donations to come will be thanks to us. After a day like today, there’s no denying, the glass is 1/2 full.
