In San Diego County, one in eight people face hunger, according to Feeding San Diego, so tomorrow, we are joining the global Giving Tuesday movement to raise funds for hunger relief in our region.
This is an annual tradition for the Sempra Energy family of companies. Over the past four years, on Giving Tuesday, our employees’ donations matched two-for-one by the Sempra Energy Foundation have provided more than 3.4 million meals to people who are hungry.
Partners in Fighting Hunger
Local charities that will benefit from our Giving Tuesday effort are:
- Feeding San Diego
- San Diego Rescue Mission
- Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County
