Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 11. Everyone throughout the Travel Leaders Group enterprise, including Nexion Travel Group staff, supplier partners and members, will join together once again in our Seventh Annual Travel Leaders Group Day of Giving.
With most schools now out of session, it’s the time of year when many children go hungry. According to statistics from Feeding America, one in every seven families struggle with hunger, and one in four children are food-deprived in the United States. As a Nexion Travel Group employee, member, supplier partner, friend or family, here’s how YOU can make a difference:
From June 1-July 11, we ask that you join us in donating time, money and/or food to help reduce “food insecure” households in North Texas and in your local communities around the country. Then, be sure to tell us about efforts using the link below. Food banks are typically at their lowest levels during the summer months, and with schools on break, that means all too many school-aged children are going hungry. With your help, we can unite to help alleviate hunger where we live and work.

Donations made by July 11 will be matched at 100 percent—which doubles the value of your gift! $1 provides three meals; $2 provides six meals sponsored by the David M. Crowley Foundation and the Light of Dawn Foundation.
Let us know how you participated in a food-related volunteer activity that occurred June 1-July 11, 2019, or how you donated food or monetary contributions during this time period to your local food bank. Don’t forget to send any corresponding photos of your volunteer efforts to email@example.com and be featured on our social channels!

Glenville Dr., Suite 300, Richardson, TX 75081). To RSVP, please send an email to Robbi Hamida at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name along with any other volunteers attending with you.
