Ronin Factory Makes $100,000+ Donation to Meals on Wheels San Diego County

San Diego based apparel company Ronin Factory gave a large donation to Meals on Wheels San Diego County. The money was collected from proceeds from every single order they received in the final two weeks of their normal monthly truck giveaway, as well as direct donations by their customers. What started out with a goal to raise $25,000 has exceeded $100,000.

#GivingTuesdayNow is a new movement that took place on Tuesday, May 5 in response to the unprecedented need caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The charity aspect was a new endeavor for the company and was so well received they are changing the way they are doing business as a whole. They are now going to partner with a charitable foundation with each monthly giveaway.

These are much needed funds to meet the skyrocketing demand for Meals on Wheels service to San Diego seniors due to COVID-19. Meals on Wheels San Diego County delivers over 450,000 meals per year to over 3,200 seniors. The organization is driven by the generous support of volunteers and donors to deliver meals to homebound seniors. This donation will allow them to answer the needs of seniors in the entire county, whether urban, suburban or rural.

“This is incredible,” says Amie Brown, director of Development. “We are adding over 100 new clients per week to our delivery routes. This donation from Ronin Factory is exactly the kind of help we need right now to ensure that we can continue offering daily deliveries and wellness checks to isolated seniors.”

Representatives of Ronin Factory were on hand to share a donation check to Meals on Wheels San Diego County staff.
