CHICAGO, IL, DECEMBER 12, 2019 – Fusion92, a Chicago-based marketing innovation company, teamed up with Meals of Hope, Operation Gratitude and Dreams for Kids to give back this holiday season. The Fusion92 team, made up of nearly 130 strategists, creatives, media experts, innovators, client service specialists and analysts, spent an afternoon together packing 10,000 meals, writing hundreds of letters and wrapping dozens of donated gifts for those in need.
“It’s really important to give back and positively affect the lives of those less fortunate, especially this time of year,” said Fusion92 President Doug Dome. “I love seeing everyone put work on hold for a few hours and really make a difference. It’s a tradition I hope we can continue for years to come.”
The 10,000 meals made for Meals of Hope were distributed to various food pantries and youth centers around Chicagoland, helping children in the community start their day with a warm, healthy meal this winter. The letters written for Operation Gratitude will be delivered to those who spend the holidays serving our country – deployed soldiers, new recruits and first responders – to express gratitude for all that they do. Finally, the donated clothing and toys were wrapped, labeled and dropped at Dreams for Kids for holiday delivery.
Fusion92 first worked with Meals of Hope in early 2019, when they packaged and donated another 10,000 meals to the Greater Chicago Food Depository and The Night Ministry. Throughout the spring and summer, Fusion92 continued its charity work. They partnered with Make-A-Wish Foundation, The Anti-Cruelty Society with Chicago Animal Care and Control, the Lincoln Park Community Center with Meals on Wheels and Dress for Success. The team created cards for children battling life-threatening medical conditions; made hundreds of dog and cat toys by hand, as well as donating toys, snacks and supplies for animal shelters; made lunches for Chicago’s homeless population; and helped women in need feel prepared to enter the workforce by volunteering in the boutique at Dress for Success.
