NEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — What Do You Meme?®, the leading manufacturer of party games has donated a variety of their family games this holiday season to two select charities:
Volunteers of America-Greater New York, a local non-profit that has provided housing, shelter and support to over 30,000 individuals and families this year and Good360, also a non-profit that distributed more than $1 billion in needed goods to help 14 million people in 2021.
"Despite tough supply chain challenges in the wake of the pandemic, our company has been able to donate more than half a million dollars worth of games to families in need in hopes to bring joy and laughter this holiday season," explained Ben Kaplan, Partner of What Do You Meme? "As a company we plan to double that donation next year as part of a larger corporate social responsibility program and charitable giving strategy for 2022 and beyond."
Earlier this year Volunteers of America-Greater New York distributed various What Do You Meme? products to families through their Operation Backpack® community service campaign and Good360’s mission is to close the need gap by distributing donated goods to communities around the country via their network of more than 100,000 vetted non-profits. They started distributing the games last month to coincide with the holiday season.
On the heels of this 2021 donation, What Do You Meme? plans to announce an official Corporate Social Responsibility Program in 2022.
