Givelify is proud to be an official sponsor and mobile donation platform for the seventh annual Pack the Pantries Indianapolis hunger relief campaign.
About Pack the Pantries
Pack the Pantries is a city-wide effort that raises awareness about issues of hunger in our community and encourages residents to help their neighbors during the holiday season when the need is greater. All donations benefit Midwest and Gleaners Food Banks who provide hunger relief to Indianapolis children and families.
Since Pack the Pantries launched in 2008, the City of Indianapolis and community partners have donated over 200,000 pounds of food and raised more than $100,000.
On Friday, October 31, Team Givelify was on hand at the launch press conference. Mayor Greg Ballard kicked off this year’s campaign with help from Indianapolis luminaries including Jim Morris, CEO of Pacers Sports & Entertainment, Noel Paul of the Indianapolis Hunger Network, Cindy Hubert, CEO of Gleaners Food Bank, and John Whitaker, CEO of Midwest Food Bank.
There were even mascots on hand from the Indiana Pacers, Indiana Fever, Indy Fuel, Indianapolis Indians, and Indy Eleven.
