Visit Anaheim Coordinates Donation of Unused Meeting Supplies to Local Nonprofit
Visit Anaheim coordinated the donation of nearly 6,000 unused meeting bags to a local nonprofit to assist in its distribution of food to local youth and families in need. Upon the cancellation of the Society of Toxicology’s (SOT) event, Visit Anaheim ensured available supplies for the community did not go to waste. The Anaheim White House, which provides meals to local families through its nonprofit Caterina’s Club, will use the bags to deliver and distribute food to those in need throughout the community. Serving as the conduit between its customers, partners and community, Visit Anaheim worked with the Society of Toxicology, Transportation Charter Services and Anaheim White House to make the donation a reality. “In the wake of event cancellations and postponements due to COVID-19, our convention center groups like Society of Toxicology continue to find a way to have a positive impact on our local community and their generosity continues to be felt throughout our city,” said Jay Burress, president & CEO, Visit Anaheim. “Connecting and uniting Visit Anaheim’s partners and stakeholders for the benefit of our destination remains our highest priority as we navigate these unprecedented times.”
Even with the temporary closure of Anaheim White House, Caterina’s Club has still found a way to serve more than 545,000 meals to local families over the last couple of months.
