Mars and the Nationals Knock it Out of the Park with Fundraiser for Bread for the City
Mars and the Washington Nationals knocked it out of the park with their summer fundraiser supporting Bread for the City. Using America’s favorite pastime, they united the DC community for an excellent cause to support our neighbors living on low or no income, raising over $6,000!
The “Kids Eat Free Program,” generously sponsored by our esteemed partners at Mars, Incorporated, a globally renowned confectionery, food, and pet care company, provided families attending Nationals games with children aged 12 and under a unique chance to make a meaningful impact. Families could make a donation to Bread for the City directly from their phones while ordering a free meal for their children on the ballpark app – empowering them to play a significant role in our greater mission while at Nationals Park enjoying the game. Bread for the City is fortunate to have been selected as the recipient of these generous donations during the summer season.
This partnership transcended mere financial support; it also served to raise awareness about our vital work. Through this collaboration, Mars and the Nationals leveraged their influence to shed light on the issue of poverty in the Washington, DC, area, inspiring others to join in our cause.
The success of this fundraiser highlights the power of community engagement and the positive impact when organizations come together for a common cause. It demonstrates that even small, everyday actions like placing an order through an app can make a big difference in the lives of those in need.
As the summer season comes to a close, we reflect on the generosity of Mars and the Washington Nationals. Their support for Bread for the City reminds us that we all have a role to play in creating a better city. So, let’s all take a page from their playbook and continue to find creative ways to give back to our community because together, we can hit a home run for good.
