Allen Robinson to Host Hunger Relief Campaign for Chicago Students
Posted By:  Austin Alley
Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Chicago Bears Wide Receiver Allen Robinson is giving back to his community by leading a campaign to provide ongoing meals to underprivileged Chicago children who are missing school as a result of COVID-19 prevention closures. This campaign, titled $12k for #12, maintains the goal to generate $12,000 in matching donations for Coronavirus relief.

Thousands of students throughout the city of Chicago rely on free and reduced breakfasts and lunches at schools for their daily nourishment. With schools closing for extended periods of time, these students have little to no access to regular meals. Robinson's Within Reach Foundation is partnering with the Greater Chicago Food Depository to address this urgent need and distribute meals to these students for the duration of the crisis.

Robinson has personally pledged to match up to $12,000 towards this cause. Now he is asking the general public to pitch in by making donations this week.

Every $12 provides a 20 pound box of food to a local family. Just one $50 donation could provide enough food to feed a family for a month. Robinson's commitment of $12,000 would provide one thousand boxes of food. By matching his donation, you would be providing over 40,000 pounds of food. Think of how many lives that could change!

Donations can be made at the Within Reach Foundation’s hunger relief campaign donation portal.
