These funds will support EMC’s partners around the world, as many experience greater demand from individuals and communities seeking food and support. The EMC Foundation will also support the efforts of local community collaboratives in Luxembourg, United Kingdom, Belgium and Czech Republic which are coordinating responses in their local regions. EMC also donated funds from its Disaster Relief Program in January to support communities in Asia.
EMC feels It is more important than ever for us to continue to support our partners who are tirelessly serving the most vulnerable in our local communities during this unprecedented time of need, as the challenges resulting from this crisis are rapidly evolving and we continue to stay in close contact with our partners to identify and support additional areas of need
EMC’s largest multi-year partner, European Foodbanking Network, is also among those set to receive funding. The European FoodBanking Network continues to work closely with its members and partners to ensure that relief continues during this crisis. We are accelerating knowledge sharing so food banks can source more meals and safely deliver food during this rapidly changing time.
We have ramped up financing for our members so that they can distribute food parcels even more quickly. We are also working with our global partners to help support members’ supply chains so they can better meet their communities’ urgent needs.”
In addition to these donations, EMC offers an employee match program which supports employees’ personal philanthropy. EMC is also activating virtual and pro bono volunteer opportunities for employees seeking to donate their time and expertise directly to partner organizations serving local communities.
