Weight Watchers employees donate food for Cy-Fair families
Weight Watchers employees in Houston recently donated food to benefit families in Cy-Fair.
The donations were part of the fourth annual Lose For Good Campaign, an initiative that helps fight hunger on a local, national and global level. The employees donated 924 pounds of food to the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department. The firefighters will distribute the food to children and families in need within the Cy-Fair School District.
The amount donated is equivalent to the total weight loss of the staff members at the Weight Watchers store in Houston at 12262 FM 1960 W.
“Lose For Good gives us all a chance to help others, while helping ourselves,” says Stephanie McClimon, Weight Watchers territory manager. “While our members are losing weight, they’re fueling the campaign efforts that help provide children and their families with access to nutritious foods.”
The Lose For Good Campaign runs until Saturday, Oct. 15. As members and online subscribers lose weight and participate in other activities, Weight Watchers will donate up to $1 million dollars to Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger to help feed children and families in need.
Also, at the end of the seven weeks, food donations will be collected from the local Weight Watchers stores that are hosting local food drives and delivered to food banks in the area.
Since the campaign's inception, Weight Watchers has donated $3 million to its charitable partners and has collected nearly five million pounds of food for local food banks.
