BNP Media raised funds for Gleaners Community Food Bank to help feed hungry children throughout metro Detroit. This generous gift would normally provide 3,780 meals to neighbors in need, but with the matching sponsors from ‘Double Your Donation Day’ program, BNP Media will provide 7,560 meals.
BNP employees organized a special bake sale to raise the funds. Fifteen employees volunteered to bake pies, cakes, and cookies. This is the 13th year that BNP Media has contributed to the Gleaners initiative. Gleaners collects 34.5 million pounds of food a year and distributes 79,000 meals each day including providing nourishing food and nutrition education to 84,700 children a year.
“We know that too many children are not getting healthy meals on a daily basis and we want to thank our employees for contributing to this important Gleaners program,” said BNP Media co-CEOs Harper, Mitchell and Taggart Henderson.
BNP Media also donates each summer to the Gleaners ‘Hunger Free Summer’ program where each dollar donated is matched by sponsors. Those dollars go to help feed children who, during the summer months, are not receiving meals at school.
Philanthropy and community engagement are core values at BNP Media, and we support organizations that help build a higher quality of life for individuals and families.
