DALLAS, September 21, 2021 / PRNewswire / – ACE Cash Express (ACE), a brand of Populus Financial Group, raised $ 5,475 for the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) at ACE’s annual fundraising event, the Give A Little campaign. This donation provided 16,425 nutritious meals to North Texans.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the NTFB team have worked tirelessly to provide healthy food to neighbors in need. Texas leads the country for the highest projected number of people (no rate) at risk of food insecurity in 2021 with 4.8 million total and 1.7 million children, new projections show by Feeding America. Thanks to the support of a generous community, NTFB was able to double its food production to help feed its community. However, thousands of people continue to go hungry in 2021 despite the historic response of the North Texas Food Bank and their partners to the unprecedented health and economic crisis caused by COVID-19.
“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 1 in 6 people North Texas risk of going hungry, “said Trisha cunningham, President and CEO of North Texas Food Bank. “We are proud to work with Populus Financial Group to achieve our common goals of addressing the root causes of hunger.”
The Give A Little campaign is a national in-store fundraiser that supports the charities chosen by ACE employees. The selected charities are those dedicated to helping children, supporting education and promoting financial literacy. By supporting the North Texas Food Bank, ACE can help provide nutritious meals to hungry people in North Texas.
