Thanks for your Support of Hurricane relief efforts!
As a result of our donation matching fundraising campaign, we were able to provide nearly 25,000 meals to people in need through the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina to aid in recovery efforts from Hurricanes Florence and Michael. Kesseböhmer’s North American offices are headquartered in Wilmington, NC, an area that was greatly impacted by recent natural disasters. Though our corporate office in Downtown Wilmington and warehouse in Leland were both fortunate to have suffered only minor damages, the community we call home withstood a direct hit from Hurricane Florence and the surrounding areas were impacted by Hurricane Michael.
why the food bank?
The Food Bank CENC serves 34 counties in North Carolina with an efficiency unmatched by most nonprofits—97 cents of each dollar donated is allocated for programs and services! This donation matching program is an opportunity for us to directly impact people where we work and live.
Donations to the Food Bank CENC help to provide food, hygiene items, and cleaning supplies to those most affected by the storms. For every $20 donated, the Food Bank is able to provide 100 meals to people in need. The Food Bank’s work in times of crisis provides healthy, accessible nutrition and allows people to allocate precious financial resources to the rebuilding process.
