SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced that Kaiser Permanente, on behalf of Pledge 74, has donated $10,000 to the Food Bank of Monterey County on Nov. 21. The donation is a culmination of Kaiser Permanente’s Assists for Food Insecurity program, which prompted a pledge of $200 for every Earthquakes assist made during the season.
Additionally, Earthquakes front office staff volunteers assisted the Food Bank of Monterey County in packing over 1,000 bags of non-perishable food items for their Emergency Food Assistance Program.
Pledge 74 is a community initiative of the San Jose Earthquakes and the Quakes Foundation. The pledge serves as the Earthquakes’ response to food insecurity in the Bay Area, raising money, increasing awareness and promoting volunteerism.
