Local Tech & Marketing Company Comes Together to Support Feeding South Florida

PeakActivity Led a Food & Fund Drive to Support Feeding South Florida, Raising $1,450 and Collecting Non-Perishable Donations

BOYNTON BEACH, FL, DECEMBER 2020 – ‘Tis the season for giving at South Florida digital technology and marketing company PeakActivity. This year the community involvement and philanthropic arm of PeakActivity, PeakCares, came together to organize a Food & Fund Drive to support Feeding South Florida. The company, despite working remotely due to COVID-19, was able to raise $1,450 and collect non-perishable donations to help support this organization’s mission to end hunger in South Florida.  

Now more than ever, organizations like Feeding South Florida need our help. Due to COVID-19, high unemployment, and a general sense of uncertainty, food insecurity is on the rise. The Food & Fund Drive supported the community in three ways; food donations to be given to Feeding South Florida, monetary donations, and the encouragement for their employees to bring non-perishables to their local food bank as some employees aren’t local to South Florida. 

“We are so grateful to work for a company that puts such an emphasis on showing up and giving back to our local communities, and for all of the support shown by our Peaksters during this holiday season,” noted Alex Shapiro, who co-leads the PeakCares team. Since the team’s inception in 2018, they’ve been a part of various fundraising efforts which have included fundraising over $2,500 for the American Heart Association. PeakActivity is humbled by their employee’s generosity and ability to come together to serve our community.

Peak Cares: Supporting the American Heart Association

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, PeakActivity is raising funds and awareness for The American Heart Association

Peak Cares

To ensure that philanthropy remains at the heart of PeakActivity’s culture and organizational structure, we established Peak Cares.

Through Peak Cares, we help local organizations with marketing and communication strategies, pro bono software development services, and company-wide Service Days that keep us engaged with our community in meaningful ways. 

The American Heart Association, Habitat for Humanity, and Kids in Distress are just a few organizations that PeakActivity frequently supports.

This month, Peak Cares is once again partnering with the American Heart Association in their mission to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. 

Why? Because heart disease continues to rank as the leading cause of death worldwide. And yet, an estimated 80% of cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke, are preventable. 

We know that the AHA is doing amazing work in advocacy, education, and research, and we want to help!

Our goal is to raise a minimum of $5,000 for the AHA while supporting their heart-healthy initiatives.

American Heart Association

The American Heart Association is the nation’s largest and oldest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. 

Their overall mission is to be a relentless force that creates a world of longer, healthier lives. 

More specifically, the AHA’s 2020 Impact Goal is to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% and reduce deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20%, all by the year 2020.

So far (since February 2018), the AHA has reduced the number of deaths from cardiovascular disease by 15% and stroke by 14.3%. 

Donations to the American Heart Association help to fund innovative research, advocacy, and patient support. 

Additionally, donated funds contribute to more effective treatments, first-responder training, and educational programs that empower our families and communities to live heart-healthy.

Walk With Us

We’re getting together to raise funds, celebrate survivors and have fun along the way at the 2020 Broward Heart Walk on Sunday, March 15.

Want to support the AHA with us?

You can help the PeakActivity team reach our fundraising goal by walking with us or donating to the cause. 

Your contribution will help us save and improve the lives of others through research, education, and emergency care.

This is not just another finish line. It’s a movement for the health and well-being of us all. We hope you’ll join us!
