Chefs for Sharing
PHILADELPHIA, November 13, 2012 – In an effort to combat persistent hunger in the region, The Salvation Army of Greater Philadelphia has engaged notable chefs from across the city to participate in its Chefs for Sharing Campaign to raise funds to help those struggling to put meals on their family tables this holiday season.
Participating chefs include:
As part of the promotion, each chef has agreed to make a special soup recipe available to anyone who donates $10 to The Salvation Army of Greater Philadelphia via an online or mobile donation. The program will coincide with the annual Red Kettle Campaign, and encourages diners to text a designated keyword to 41444 at the end of their meal to make a pledge to the cause. Donations of $10 or more redeem a complimentary soup recipe from the chef.
The chefs have also recorded personal videos which will be featured on The Salvation Army’s YouTube channel and media lounge to help draw attention to the campaign.
"We are thrilled to have the support of these celebrated local chefs. They are generously sharing their time and talent to inspire others to support our neighbors in need," says Major Robert W. Dixon, director of operations for The Salvation Army of Greater Philadelphia. "Right here in Greater Philadelphia there are families struggling to put food on the table, and we commend these chefs for helping us bring attention to our Christmas fundraising efforts."
Donations can be made to The Salvation Army of Greater Philadelphia securely online, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY, or by texting the keyword SHARE to 41444 to make a donation with your mobile phone.
