AdvoCare® was built on the premise that helping people and giving back to your community should be part of your everyday life. That’s why we’re celebrating National Volunteer Week this week by recognizing a few of the AdvoCare Foundation grantees who do amazing things for the communities where they operate. With your help over the past six years, the AdvoCare Foundation has given more than $1M in grants to 11 incredible organizations committed to helping children and families live happy and healthy lives.
Take a look at what the AdvoCare Foundation grantees have been up to lately:
- The Concilio (Dallas) recently participated in a Health and Prevention Expo in South Dallas to provide information to their community on our Healthy Kids and Families program, vaccines, and rental assistance.
- C.H.O.I.C.E.S (Center Helping Obesity In Children End Successfully, Inc. – Atlanta) held a mobile pantry packing event where they distributed 27,000 pounds of food to 375 families.
- Vetri Community Partnership (Philadelphia) started its month-long knife skills series to teach children and adolescents best practices for building knife skills in the kitchen. This program will encourage kids to create healthy culinary lunches and be safe while doing so.
- The North Texas Food Bank (Dallas) recently held its second annual Nourish North Texas Telethon raising enough funds to provide access to more than 850,000 meals to North Texas families.
The AdvoCare Foundation’s mission is to attack obesity by supporting organizations across the country whose work directly impacts the safety and health of children and families in need. These organizations support the AdvoCare Foundations’ mission and champion for children in their communities. We couldn’t reach children across the country without them!
We will continue to visit with each of our grantees throughout the spring sharing more information about what each organization is doing for the children and families of their community. To learn more about the AdvoCare Foundation, visit https://advocarefoundation.org/.
