At the end of last year, Fuse team members pulled together to participate in a Fusegiving Food Drive, an effort to collect nonperishable food items to donate to the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank. Altogether, the team managed to amass 236 pounds of nonperishable food items, estimated to provide 197 meals to people in need. Additionally, the Fusegiving Food Drive collected $175 in monetary donations, estimated to provide 5 meals for every dollar. In total, the Fuse team donations amounted to an estimate of 1,072 meals for San Diegans in need.
The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and North County Food Bank chapter work together to provide healthy food to those in the community who need it, act as advocates, and spread awareness for people who are hungry and hunger-related issues. The food bank provides support to hundreds of thousands of people per month in San Diego County.
The Fusegiving Food Drive was organized by Mary Bolton, Sonia Wilson, and Joe Daniels. The drive was held after the Thanksgiving holiday from November 30th to December 14th.
Fuse is incredibly thankful and proud that, despite these unprecedented and difficult times, our team was able to come together in support of others who are facing hardships in our community.
