Challenge Accepted: Consensus Joins #GivingTuesday Movement, Donates to Two Local Charities

Posted by | News | No Comments

In a national movement called #GivingTuesday, nonprofits from around the country are calling on organizations to help them raise money online. Here in Orlando, WESH has joined forces with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida to raise $20,000 to help provide 80,000 meals to those in need. So in the spirit of the holiday season, Consensus has generously decided to donate $500 each to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and the Children’s Home Society of Florida.

“We’ve always been strong supporters of local organizations seeking to help the most vulnerable in our community – Second Harvest Food Bank and Children’s Home Society provide services that are especially needed in these tough economic times,” said Consensus President Tre’ Evers. “We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate this giving season than by supporting two groups that make such a difference in the lives of so many here in Orlando and across the state.”

Second Harvest Food Bank collects, stores and distributes food to more than 500 partner agencies throughout Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties. According to the nonprofit, just one dollar can provide four meals to a hungry neighbor.

Children’s Home Society of Florida is the oldest and largest statewide organization devoted to helping children and families, serving 100,000 throughout the state each year.

Join Consensus in making a difference in our community by supporting these local nonprofits or others. For more information about #GivingTuesday and Second Harvest Food Bank, visit www.foodbankcentralflorida.org. To learn more about Children’s Home Society, visit www.chsfl.org.
