One Colorado, the one city retail block in the heart of historic Old Pasadena, has donated $25,000 to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank as part of CoreGiving Foundation’s effort to support the fight against childhood hunger.
CoreGiving, a national philanthropic partnership between ShopCore Properties and LivCor real estate dedicated to fighting childhood hunger, has raised more than $455,000 in less than a month of a campaign to support food banks in areas where ShopCore owns and operates shopping centers, including One Colorado.
To date, the foundation has distributed $355,000 into communities throughout America. This includes One Colorado’s donation to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank on Tuesday, April 7, a One Colorado statement said.
The statement said more than 30 million children who take part in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) are unsure of where their next meal will come from during this time when schools are closed and the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to radiate across the country.
“It’s so important to show up for our community, now more than ever, and The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is doing their part to help combat food insecurity during this unprecedented time,” McLean Emenegger, Director of Marketing and Events at One Colorado, said. “Many families have little access to food and groceries as a result of this pandemic, and we are so fortunate to be able to support the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank with a $25,000 donation.”
The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank serves more than 300,000 people every month. About a quarter of the food is distributed to children, and roughly one-fifth ends up in the hands of older adults, the statement said.
