RedPrairie Corporation, a global supply chain and retail technology provider, has set a record for the largest online donation to Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization. RedPrairie’s 2011 donation was the largest online food drive donation made by any company since Feeding America began hosting online food drives in 2008.
RedPrairie employees throughout the United States participated in a three-week online food drive, including ice cream socials and shopping cart relays, to donatie more than $12,000 in cash and food items. With the addition of a RedPrairie company match of $6,300, RedPrairie’s total donation exceeded $18,500 and surpassed fundraising totals from previous years. Based on Feeding America’s calculation that $100 can create 800 meals, RedPrairie’s donation will provide approximately 150,000 meals to families in need.
