The company's partners Fred and Jill Farzan presented the gift to No Kid Hungry representatives on behalf of the company.
Sponsored by Share Our Strength, No Kid Hungry is a national campaign that helps ensure school children across America have access to healthy meals. The campaign has supplied more than 460 million breakfasts and after school and summer meals in local communities.
“We would like to thank Jilla Farzan and the team at Nora Lighting for their generous gift,” said Nathalie Keller, California Associate Director for Development. “We are making great progress each year and are proud to report that we have helped connect kids in America to millions of nutritious meals while raising national visibility about childhood hunger.”
For the last six years, Nora Lighting has made a holiday donation to a charitable cause.
“This year we asked our Nora team what program they would like to support and the overwhelming choice was No Kid Hungry,” said Jilla Farzan, Executive Vice President at Nora Lighting. “In the past our company would send promotional gifts during the holidays, but during the recent recession we decided it would be more meaningful to help those who are less fortunate.”
“We are blessed to have such a caring staff and, as a company, offer financial support to programs like No Kid Hungry,” said Neda Farzan, Nora Business Development Manager. “Without the specter of hunger in their daily lives, children can thrive in school and focus on attaining academic excellence. This program benefits families and entire communities.”
