We at Sparo are honored to have been able to assist the Maryland Food Bank with enough donations to serve 45,000 meals to the needy in Maryland.
Sparo Corporation, a developer for the Sparo Community Giving Platform, an early stage technology platform to make charitable giving fun and easy, announced today that it has delivered a $15,000 donation to the Maryland Food Bank to provide 45,000 meals for area families. Sparo’s patented platform allows users to find and make donations to charities, and offers charities a chance to win a jackpot donation through its Sparo Sweepstakes.
“Sparo is changing the way donations are made to make it easy and fun to support charities,” said Rob Sobhani, founder and CEO of Sparo. “As we get set to launch our platform into the market, we wanted to show our support for the Maryland Food Bank with an upfront donation.”
Baltimore-based Maryland Food Bank has faced increased pressure recently helping families impacted by the government shutdown.
“This donation fills a critical need in Maryland with families facing hunger unexpectedly,” said Meg Kimmel, executive vice president, programs and external affairs at the Maryland Food Bank. “The effects of the shutdown are proving to be longer lasting than most people realize, and 45,000 meals will go a long way to providing stability to these families.”
