Bookwell Travel continues its 16million meal donation campaign
Savannah, GA (February 23, 2021) – On Saturday, February 27th, Bookwell Travel will donate 50,000 meals to Feed the Hungry at their Empowerment Center at 4704 Augusta Rd. in Savannah, GA as part of the next phase in its national launch. Leading up to the donation, Bookwell Travel founder Brian Gates will run for 12 hours, starting just after midnight from the JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District, a local hospitality venue that supports Bookwell Travel’s philanthropic mission, to raise awareness of the 12 hours of hunger that families can face when food support runs out. Gates is expected to arrive at Feed the Hungry at noon on Saturday.
“We are a booking platform that puts feeding the hungry first. It’s a philosophy that is at the core of our business,” said Brian Gates. “Bookwell Travel was founded with a mission to fight the hunger crisis in America. I want to ask people to join our mission to donate 16 million meals by the end of the year by booking their next trip through BookwellTravel.com.”
The food donation in Savannah, Georgia marks the start of Bookwell Travel’s national campaign to feed the hungry in every state in the United States by partnering directly with community food organizations like Feed the Hungry.
“Feed the Hungry is excited to be partnering with Bookwell Travel to feed the working poor and to serve over 50,000 meals on February 27th,” said Carl Gilliard, CEO of Feed the Hungry and a member of the Georgia House of Representatives. “I believe this will be one of the largest giveaways in the Southeast at one time that we’ve ever given out in the history of Feed the Hungry. Now more than ever, the working poor is in need we are excited that Brian Gates has extended his heart of servitude to come down to Savannah Georgia to help us give a hand up instead of a handout. Together we believe we can give poverty a pink slip.”
