WestCorp Gifts Coregiving With $10,000 Toward Hunger Relief
The philanthropic initiative focuses on fighting hunger for the second consecutive year
By: WCMG Media Relations Group
CoreGiving, a 501c3 organization, was created in 2016 to fight child hunger in those communities where ShopCore Properties owns and operates real estate. Founded by ShopCore Properties (Chicago, Ill.), CoreGiving has expanded to include six other portfolio companies including Beam Living (New York, N.Y.), BRE Hotels & Resorts (New York, N.Y.), Link Logistics (New York, N.Y.), LivCor (Chicago, Ill.), Longview Senior Housing Advisors (Tampa, Fla.), and Revantage (Chicago, Ill.).
"As a company that specializes in multifamily property management, we are, at our core, about families," said Bob Weidauer, CEO, WestCorp Management Group. "We are proud to support CoreGiving and LivCor in their mission to end food insecurity for children to make our communities better.
CoreGiving is so grateful to WestCorp Management Group for their continued immense generosity, especially as we look to provide assistance to our hungry neighbors," said Luke Petherbridge, Founder of CoreGiving and CEO of Link Logistics. "Before COVID-19, 10.5 percent of Americans were living in poverty. The pandemic has had a devastating impact on dramatically raising this number, and the reality is that more Americans, including children, are facing hunger and poverty today. Along with the support from our corporate partners and generous donations from our vendors, families and friends, we are committed to expanding our reach and helping more children and families in need."
In 2020, CoreGiving contributed to 27 food banks throughout the U.S. and partnered with more than 400 donors, providing 4.1 million meals to hungry children. The food banks were located in N.Y., Pa., Mass., Va., N.C., Fla., Ala., La., Texas, Calif., Ariz., Nev., Wash., Colo., and Ill. The goal for the nonprofit in 2021 is to provide 7.5 million meals and donate over 10,000 hours of volunteer service. To learn about CoreGiving and how to donate, visit http://www.coregiving.org
