Allen Robinson to Host Hunger Relief Campaign for Chicago Students
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.
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.
$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!
