We hope that all our external Shout! family is safe and staying home during this crisis. Though we too are working from home, we continue to bring you the TV shows and movies you love. We realize how fortunate we are to be able to continue doing business and, as such, have launched Shout! Factory Cares. We’ve identified two exceptional non-profits that are making a difference and we have already started designating 5% of gross sales from our site as donations: First Responders Children’s Foundation and Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.
Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization with a network of 200 member food banks across the country, recently announced the establishment of the COVID-19 Response Fund to help food banks across the country as they support communities impacted by the pandemic. The $2.65 million fund will enable food banks to secure the resources they need to serve the most vulnerable members of the community during this difficult time. Still, it is impossible for the Feeding America network to address this pandemic without public and government support, so that food banks can do what they do best — feed people in need within their communities.
First Responders Children’s Foundation provides financial support to both children who have lost a parent in the line of duty as well as families enduring significant financial hardships due to tragic circumstances. First Responders Children’s Foundation also supports, promotes, and facilitates educational activities and programs created and operated by law enforcement and firefighting organizations whose purpose is to benefit children or the community at large.
First responders are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic in every community across the country, and First Responders Children’s Foundation provides support to those first responder families who are enduring financial hardship due to the coronavirus outbreak. If you are a first responder family in need, you can donate to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, please click here to help make a difference, and thank you.
