River City Furniture Rental Reaches its Goal in its “Feed Our Community” Campaign by Providing Over 15,000 Meals in 2019, Through The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano County.

Northern California’s River City Furniture Rental company has announced that they have achieved their goal in the “Feed Our Community” campaign with The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano County.

The “Feed Our Community” campaign was simple. Every time a client rented furniture from River City; they made a financial donation that resulted in fifty (50) meals for families in the community.   

As continued news reports of tent cities on the side of roads, families in need and children going to bed hungry, River City looked to make a formal partnership with the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano County. “Every dollar we donated made a difference to a person in our community, we wanted to support our community by feeding families” said Liz Laird, President of River City Furniture Rental. “We have been so impressed with The Food Bank and their commitment, support and dedication. They are out there 365 days a year feeding over 178,000 people each month, they are making a real difference.”

“We were thrilled when River City Furniture Rental approached us” said John Calender

Corporate Relations Manager from Food Bank. “The idea that when someone rents furniture 50 people are provided a meal, warmed our hearts”. The Food Bank recently reported that 96 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to food programs and 1 in 4 people receiving emergency food are children. An alarming 1 in 8 people within Contra Costa and Solano counties turn to the Food Bank for emergency and supplemental food. The Food Bank has developed programs that address these needs as well as nutritional assistance.

River City is already looking to 2020 with a new goal as they are committed to working with the Food Bank and its volunteers. “We want to do more in 2020 and we believe we can double our commitment” Liz proudly stated, “We plan to meet with the Food Bank in early January with our final 2019 donation, we plan to volunteer and continue our partnership”.
