#GivingTuesday Helps Feed the Hungry

Every year, on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, people around the globe kick off the charitable season  of giving back with #GivingTuesday.

At SDG&E, we focus our #GivingTuesday efforts by helping to feed the nearly 500,000 people in our area who do not know where their next meal will come from. For every $1 our employees donate to a local organization that feeds the hungry, the company offers a double-match, and will donate an additional $2.  

In the three years we have offered this program, employees from the Sempra Energy family of companies have contributed over 2.5 million meals to children and families in need, helping to make a real impact in our communities.

A Hashtag That Makes a Difference

Every dollar donated makes a difference. Most food banks can turn every dollar they receive into five meals for the children and adults who don’t have enough to eat.

Whether you are donating money or volunteering your time, there are plenty of ways to take part in #GivingTuesday. To find an organization where you can make a difference this holiday season visit GivingTuesday.org.
