Local biz feeds the hungry
Most of us use large big-box online stores such as Amazon.com or Staples to buy our office supplies and such.
However, did you know that a Hoboken resident owns an online office supply store called Supply Brothers? One thing that sets Supply Brothers apart from the rest is impeccable customer service that seems to have been lost in the cold online world.
Regardless of where you shop online, they wanted to let you know that between now and December 19th, they will donate $1 for every order placed to a national food bank serving all 50 states.
“Recent economic times have not only been tough, they have been life changing for many Americans,” says Aaron Gerard, CEO.
For every order placed through December 19, Supply Brothers will donate $1 to The Feeding America Network (formerly known as America’s Second Harvest). Only $1 is needed to provide 16 meals for families in need!
The Feeding America Network provides emergency food assistance to more than 25 million Americans facing hunger every year.
The company strongly believes in supporting people in distress. They especially recognize the need to contribute, even as they face tough times themselves.
“As a small business, we are facing our own challenges in this very difficult climate. We have seen large price increases from our manufacturers over the past two years. Our company has not raised prices on our office supplies. This has been very difficult for us. However, we are still committed to our customers and our pledge to helping where we can. That is why we are creating this donation program,” says Gerard.
According to a recent NY Times article, “Food banks around the country are reporting critical shortages that have forced them to ration supplies, distribute staples usually reserved for disaster relief and in some instances close.”
“We are happy to do what we can,” says Gerard.
