American Cruise Lines , the largest U.S. cruise company, announced today that it has raised more than $10,000 for Connecticut Food Bank with its new “Give-Back” program, a brand new initiative dedicated to helping those in need.
Launched back in August, the line announced the program’s first partnership with Connecticut Food Bank in an effort to help alleviate hunger in Connecticut, which is home to its headquarters. The line promised to donate $50 to the Food Bank for each ticket sold on its Thanksgiving cruises, which include:
“We’re thrilled with the outcome of our very first campaign with the Give-Back program,” said Timothy Beebe, Vice President of American Cruise Lines. “Knowing that our support of Connecticut Food Bank will help brighten the holidays for members of our community is a rewarding feeling.”
American Cruise Lines will present Connecticut Food Bank with its donation on December 5, 2013 at the Food Bank’s headquarters in East Haven, CT. All interested reporters in the area are welcome to join the event. Both American Cruise Lines and Connecticut Food Bank executives will be present.
“We are most grateful for American Cruise Lines’ generous and timely donation,” said Nancy L.
Carrington, Connecticut Food Bank’s President and CEO. “More Connecticut families than ever will struggle to put food on the table this holiday season, so this gift could not be more appreciated. We thank the line for its support of the Food Bank and its fight against hunger in Connecticut.”
American Cruise Lines plans to partner with many more organizations through its Give-Back program.
