On Tuesday, September 18, Umami Burger kicked off a one-day campaign with St. Vincent Meals on Wheels for National Cheeseburger Day. The “No Senior Goes Hungry Campaign” helped to bring awareness to the 250,000 seniors in Los Angeles that are at risk of hunger, food insecurity, malnutrition, and even homelessness.
Providing Senior Citizens With Respect And Compassion
For National Cheeseburger Day, Umami Burger participated in raising funds for St. Vincent Meals on Wheels. Known for their generosity and good deeds, it’s no surprise that Umami Burger held yet another amazing selfless campaign to care for others. When guests placed their orders and indicated their support for the organization, Umami Burger donated $2 from that meal to St. Vincent Meals on Wheels. St. Vincent Meals on Wheels provides every senior citizen with respect and compassion, along with nutritious meals every day — and the scope of this operation expands to nearly 2,000 hungry and homebound senior citizens in LA.
It is an indisputable belief that every senior citizen deserves respect and compassion, and Umami Burger created another easy way for everyone to take part in changing the lives of senior citizens in Los Angeles. Though this weeks efforts have already passed, maybe sometime soon Umami Burger will team up with Wheels on Meals again. Whatever the case, you can always look forward to Umami Burger launching a worthwhile campaign for you to participate in, that can help make a positive impact on the community.
