BOYNTON BEACH, FL, DECEMBER 2020 – ‘Tis the season for giving at South Florida digital technology and marketing company PeakActivity. This year the community involvement and philanthropic arm of PeakActivity, PeakCares, came together to organize a Food & Fund Drive to support Feeding South Florida. The company, despite working remotely due to COVID-19, was able to raise $1,450 and collect non-perishable donations to help support this organization’s mission to end hunger in South Florida.
Now more than ever, organizations like Feeding South Florida need our help. Due to COVID-19, high unemployment, and a general sense of uncertainty, food insecurity is on the rise. The Food & Fund Drive supported the community in three ways; food donations to be given to Feeding South Florida, monetary donations, and the encouragement for their employees to bring non-perishables to their local food bank as some employees aren’t local to South Florida.
“We are so grateful to work for a company that puts such an emphasis on showing up and giving back to our local communities, and for all of the support shown by our Peaksters during this holiday season,” noted Alex Shapiro, who co-leads the PeakCares team. Since the team’s inception in 2018, they’ve been a part of various fundraising efforts which have included fundraising over $2,500 for the American Heart Association. PeakActivity is humbled by their employee’s generosity and ability to come together to serve our community.
