Young Living announced a new donation to Meals on Wheels, a nonprofit organization that delivers healthy food to the homes of senior citizens.
Young Living will be donating 1 percent of all North American sales from the Thieves product line through the month of March 2020, beginning with an initial immediate donation of $100,000.
The donation will be given directly to the Meals on Wheels COVID-19 Response Fund, which benefits the Meals on Wheels program in both the U.S. and Canada. This fund will focus on supporting efforts to replenish the supply of food for the program, subsidizing additional transportation, enabling the implementation of telephone reassurance to connect with isolated seniors and other initiatives caring for seniors in need.
“Young Living recognizes the magnitude of COVID-19’s impact and the importance of caring for every member of the community during this time. Though this crisis has left no life untouched, our senior citizens are among the most vulnerable,” said Jared Turner, president and COO of Young Living. “We’re honored to contribute to Meals on Wheels as they care for the senior members of our community. We also are committing to finding other ways to help our friends and neighbors however and whenever possible throughout this precarious time.”
