Houston, TX (US) – Integrated Informatics is excited to announce our sponsorship of cyclist Phil Gaimon and his fundraising efforts for the Chef's Cycle and No Kid Hungry organizations.
Our company is no stranger to getting involved in the local community – from encouraging education through awards and scholarships to participating in local health and fitness events, we believe it is important to give back to those living and working around us. With this sponsorship of No Kid Hungry, we are showing support for our community on a much grander scale.
With 1 in 6 children in America facing hunger, No Kid Hungry seeks to give children direct access to food and provide families proper education and skills-building when it comes to nutrition and affordable cooking. While providing these programs to children across America, they also seek to change policies that would make it easier for families and caregivers to feed themselves in the long run.
Services that No Kid Hungry provides are important for communities across the United States. In times of crisis, this organization also works alongside local groups to make a difference. For instance, No Kid Hungry donated $300,000 towards recovery and relief efforts when Hurricane Harvey devastated the Houston area in 2017 – a portion of which went directly to the Houston Food Bank which was essential in providing food, water, and supplies to families in the aftermath of the storm.
As Gaimon continues fundraising for this charity over the next few months, our donation will be used to match contributions up to $10,000. We are grateful for this opportunity to support him in reaching his fundraising goal all while contributing to such a worthy cause.
