1-800-FLOWERS.COM Introduces "Season of Sharing" Holiday Gift Collection
1-800-FLOWERS.COM announced a nationwide holiday campaign to benefit No Kid Hungry. Now through December 24, the company will donate 20% of the Net Proceeds from each gift purchased from its specially curated "Season of Sharing" holiday gift collection to help No Kid Hungry ensure kids get the food they need. For every dollar No Kid Hungry receives, it can provide up to 10 meals to children in need.
"It's hard to imagine that almost half of America's families are living with hunger," says Chris McCann, Chief Executive Officer, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. "New estimates show the number of children facing hunger has nearly doubled since before the pandemic – where now 1 in 4 children could be going hungry. No Kid Hungry has a plan to make sure children are fed, both during this health crisis and beyond. That's why we've teamed up with No Kid Hungry this holiday season – to make sure kids get the meals they need."

Chevrolet will contribute $5 for every social post (up to $220,000) on Twitter or Instagram using #IDriveFor.
Weld Food Bank, Meals on Wheels to receive donations through Target Circle program
Two nonprofits will receive nearly $2,000 combined through a Target Circle donation program. Meals on Wheels Loveland/Berthoud and Weld Food Bank were selected this summer for the program.
For every purchase a Target Circle customer — a patron signed up for the store’s rewards program — makes online or in-store, they receive one vote to use toward a nonprofit. If a customer makes multiple purchases, they can vote multiple times. The organizations then receive financial donations based on the number of votes cast. Target typically chooses different organizations every quarter.
Here's how it works: Customers place an online order before 2 p.m. ET and select "Same Day Delivery" during check out. Then, a Belk personal shopper will fill the order and deliver it directly to customer's door by 9 p.m. Orders placed after 2 p.m. ET will be delivered the following the day. Same Day Delivery is available on select merchandise for $9.95 on orders $49+ and $14.95 on orders under $49. Qualifying items are easy to locate online with a Same Day Delivery icon.
"We've been steadily expanding our e-commerce options to ensure our customers can shop whenever, wherever and however it best fits their life," says Lisa Harper, Belk CEO. "Adding a Same Day Delivery option is one of the ways we are adapting our 133-year-old company to meet the needs of our modern customer, all while still providing the same quality and fashion that they rely on."
