AT&T customers can help fight childhood hunger by texting the word ”SHARE” to 20222. Each text message will donate $5 to Share Our Strength, a non-profit organization aimed at leaving no kid hungry.
In addition, AT&T will match each donation, up to $100,000, through March 1. Share Our Strength says that one in six children in America are at risk of not getting enough food every day. More details are available HERE.
The text-donation initiative is an effort between Share Our Strength and the Mobile Giving Foundation, a nonprofit wireless industry ogranization. AT&T said that its participation is in response to President-elect Obama’s call for action and a national day of service on January 19.
In addition, AT&T’s employees are holding food drives to benefit local food banks. In the Orange County and Los Angeles area, there are more than 10,000 AT&T employees. Food drives will take place in Anaheim and Los Angeles. In Orange County, proceeds will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank.
