Artisanal Brands, Inc., has announced its first holiday season effort to aid charity in support of the non-profit organization, Robin Hood foundation.
For each purchase of its Cheese of the Month Club, Artisanal will contribute $ 25-$ 75 to Robin Hood, which supports more than 200 poverty-fighting nonprofit organizations in NewYork City. The amount of the contribution varies according to the package purchased; packages are available for 3 month, 6 month or 12 month time periods. A $ 25 donation helps feed a hungry New Yorker for one week and Artisanalâ€™s goal is to generate enough funding to provide 100,000 meals this holiday season.
Daniel W. Dowe, President and Chief Executive Officer of Artisanal commented, â€œWe are very excited to support Robin Hood in its work with our fellow New Yorkers in need. This opportunity allows our customers to select a unique holiday gift while also supporting a tremendous organization within our community. The holidays are about sharing as well as celebration.â€
