On Monday, October 19th as Allen Robinson hosted his Within Reach Foundation's third annual 'An Evening Within Reach' presented by Jewel Osco from the comfort of our homes! More than two hundred
foundation supporters tuned in to participate in the livestream event on Monday
evening, which featured celebrity appearances from teammates Nick Foles,
Anthony Miller, Darnell Mooney, Riley Ridley, Javon Wims, Rodney Adams, Reggie
Davis as well as local celebrities Laurence Holmes, Justin Roman, David Kaplan,
Cortney Hall and Israel Idonije.
In all, over $110,000 was raised through the virtual ‘An Evening Within
Reach’ on Monday night, including a $40,000 donation from Allen himself. These
funds will continue to improve the quality of life of the kids most impacted by
the COVID-19 pandemic in Chicago.
With schools closed,
students do not have regular access to the free and reduced lunch program. Resultantly,
Robinson began working with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, providing over
18 tons of food since the pandemic began. The Within Reach Foundation will use
proceeds from this event to continue distributing these meals will into the Fall
and Spring of 2021.
