Giving Back to Feeding America

Last year when the pandemic hit, The Stationery Studio wanted to find a way to help those hit hardest by the virus.  We were proud to support the Feeding America COVID-19 Response Fund during critical times in 2020.  With your help, we were able to donate over 400,000 meals to those in need.

“We all know someone who’s been affected by the pandemic,” said Renee Redman, founder of The Stationery Studio. “We wanted to help give back during this difficult time and the Feeding America COVID-19 Response Fund was the perfect way for us to help.”  

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Feeding America is committed to serving communities and individuals facing hunger across America, wherever they are. Every dollar raised from the COVID-19 Response Fund will be used to get food and funds to local food banks across the U.S.

As Covid continues to impact so many people, we are thrilled to continue our support of Feeding America.  The Stationery Studio will donate $1 for every product sold from April 1 – June 30, 2021.  We love supporting our communities and are compassionate about giving back. The Stationery Studio has helped with various charities including Giving Tuesday, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, One Warm Coat, Red Nose Day, Vernon Township Food Pantry and others.  To learn more about the charities The Stationery Studio has helped support, click here.

 

Have you thanked a volunteer?

This morning on twitter I saw that #NationalVolunteerWeek was trending.  I was excited to see that there’s a whole week to bring attention to volunteers.  Sometimes in our busy lives, we forget about the people who selflessly give their time to make things happen all around us.  If you do volunteer for something, you might not ever think about getting thanks or praise because you don’t volunteer for that reason.

I am lucky because I was raised by a family who lives by the motto of giving back.  My parents are now retired and live a life of philanthropy.  I am always in awe of the lives they change through their volunteering.  #NationalVolunteerWeek reminds me to thank my parents for all they do.  It’s reminding me to thank ALL the volunteers in my life from soccer coaches to PTO members.  Take a moment to think about the people you know in your own life and your community who volunteer to make things happen.  Maybe it’s someone at your church, your local pet shelter, the food pantry, your neighborhood … you get the idea.  Why not send them a quick email to thank them and know how much they’re appreciated?  Or you can stop by and bring them a gift card for a cup of coffee or some fresh flowers.

Working at The Stationery Studio, I have had the opportunity to give back by working with organizations that positively impact our community.  I thank The Stationery Studio for allowing our workplace to give back!

Take a moment this week to thank volunteers.  I promise you they will appreciate it more than you know!
