Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University launched a campaign to raise money for Food Brings Hope’s weekend grocery bag initiative. The ERAU campaign, called "The $7 Sacrifice" in reference to the cost of each bag, sought to raise $25,000 through a campus-wide competition to develop creative ways to generate donations. The campaign nearly doubled this amount with a $46,000 check that was presented by President John Johnson to Forough B. Hosseini, Founder of Food Brings Hope.
"At Food Brings Hope, we continue to be touched by the generosity of organizations and individuals in our community who share our goal to eliminate hunger among our school children," said Hosseini. "There are no words to adequately describe the appreciation we have for the students, faculty and staff of Embry-Riddle who, through their efforts, will greatly impact the lives of so many in our community."
In fact, the donation from Embry-Riddle will feed 130 families of four for a year.
"It is with the support of institutions like Embry-Riddle and generous and kind hearts like Dr. and Mrs. Johnson that we can expand our program to cover more schools and help a larger number of the underprivileged and homeless children in the county," Hosseini said.
