Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Partners with No Kid Hungry

FCA and Chrysler Brand Expand Partnership with No Kid Hungry to Feed Children Impacted by Coronavirus School Closures.


I have had the experience to partner with Fiat in the past to test drive the Abarth. I love when companies you work with are doing good while this Pandemic is happening. Some brands are making masks, some are donating supplies and others are donating money.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is partnering with No Kid Hungry to support its grantees ‒ schools, food banks, and community groups across the country ‒ in serving 640,000 meals during the crisis-related school closures as part of the automaker’s broader 1 million meals commitment

Did you know that FCA has partnered with more than 40 local nonprofits to feed school children in its plant communities in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, as well as Canada and Mexico?

In response to the coronavirus crisis, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) announced a commitment to provide more than 1 million meals to ensure children who depend on school meals continue to have access to nutritious food. FCA is moving closer to achieving this goal, partnering with No Kid Hungry to support its grantees ‒ schools, food banks, and community groups across the country ‒ in serving 640,000 meals during school closures due to the pandemic. FCA’s corporate partnership is incremental to the expanded partnership with No Kid Hungry that the Chrysler brand announced in mid-March.

There has never been a more important moment to help children and their families,” said Mark Stewart, Chief Operating Officer of FCA – North America. “FCA and the Chrysler brand are pleased to support No Kid Hungry in its mission to end childhood hunger.”

Millions of vulnerable children are losing the healthy meals they depend on as the coronavirus has closed schools nationwide. No Kid Hungry has a plan to help feed them. As part of its coronavirus relief and recovery efforts, No Kid Hungry is providing emergency grants to schools, food banks and community groups all across the country, and diverting staff and resources to the hardest-hit communities.

“We are incredibly grateful to FCA and to the Chrysler brand for stepping up even more so for America’s kids,” said Tom Nelson, President, and CEO at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “This incremental support will help us feed more vulnerable kids who are currently missing the school meals they rely on.”

In addition to its national partnership with No Kid Hungry, FCA is working with more than 40 local nonprofit organizations (Table 1) that are providing meals to children in the communities around its principal manufacturing plants in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. Similar programs are underway in Canada and Mexico.

Chrysler Brand Expands Partnership with No Kid Hungry

The Chrysler brand first partnered with No Kid Hungry in 2018 to help end childhood hunger in America. This March, the Chrysler brand announced it was expanding that partnership. With the sale of every Chrysler Pacifica from March 18 through the end of June, Chrysler is making a contribution that will help No Kid Hungry provide meals to kids in need across the country.

Ultimate Birthday Celebrations!

We are on about week 8 of staying safe at home. I will be honest, I don’t like the phrase “Stuck at home” we are not stuck. We are being proactive for the safety of our lives and for those around us. While being home and not working or for some who are working remotely for quite some time we are all missing out on some major celebrations. Ultimate Celebrations in Quarantine are definitely a little different than we are used to. Party City is here to help with some of your party needs while we celebrate virtually this year. Are you making the most of the ultimate virtual celebrations in quarantine?

Happy Birthday!

Ultimate Birthday Celebrations in Quarantine!

Parties in quarantine should not be happening except for celebrating with those in your immediate household. However, I loving seeing all the posts on social media with drive-by parties and having a gathering over Zoom. Social Distancing is still a factor and making sure we are not in close proximity to those we haven’t seen in a while. Every day is a reason to celebrate, so let’s have fun doing it. Above all, make sure you are celebrating at a distance or reschedule a party when it is safe to do so.

Time to think outside the party box!

Yes, I recently turned 41, and even though that might not be a big deal a birthday is a birthday no matter the number. I know others are missing out on Communions, Confirmations, Graduation, and upcoming Mother’s Day. What events are you missing out on while stay at home orders are happening?

A few ways to celebrate could be by using your local Party City and do a drive-by with a group of friends each in their own car or host a virtual party via zoom or even dropping of goody bags. This way you can ask parents or friends to share the party on social media or you can set up a Facebook page to invite everyone to keep the party going all week long by posting video messages.

Part City is offering a Virtual Party Discount with purchases of the Ultimate kits. Use code Virtual99 and see the savings come off of your total. The code is only valid until this weekend. So plan ahead and get your Ultimate Party Pack Today!

Party City has made it easy with the best Virtual Drive-by Birthday Kits available in all sorts of themes like Disney, Mario Bros & more! Only $99 with the discount code: VIRTUAL99

How will you be celebrating in Quarantine?
