Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, Realtors CEO Larry Flick V announced that Fox & Roach/Trident Charities — the charitable arm of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach Realtors/The Trident Group — donated $25,000 for COVID-19 relief efforts to local food banks, addressing the current COVID-19 challenges of food relief across the company's service areas.
“Our food providers are seeing up to a 200% uptick in food insecurity due to COVID-19," said Kassie Erb, Fox & Roach/Trident Charities president.
School closures have limited access to food for children and their families that depend on their local school district for meals. The spike in unemployment threatens the well-being of families that live paycheck to paycheck.
"Our funds will go to these listed nonprofits that provide nutritional support to children and their families with breakfast, lunch, and emergency weekend food boxes," said Erb. Local food banks receiving funds include Food Bank of Delaware, Share Food Program, Philabundance, Second Harvest Food Bank of Lehigh Valley, Food Bank of South Jersey, Community Food Bank of New Jersey, Mercer Street Friends Food Bank and Fulfill.
