Carolina Freire’s 2020 Action Pledge

As soon as the COVID emergency was declared, our foundation sprung to action, helping to organize the largest food donation campaign in the country in alliance with the food bank and another 40 non profit organizations. We also activated our volunteer platform to meet the urgent needs of the community and continue to innovate in order to support our country through these trying times. I am proud of continuing and strengthening the work of our foundation. 
I maintain my job and at the same time am a full time volunteer to support more than 210 non profits during the COVID emergency.
