Feed the Children
For more than 20 years, Yamaha Motorsports is proud to partner with Feed the Children to help those less fortunate within the United States by holding special events.
Feed the Children is a non-profit relief organization with headquarters in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Feed the Children believes that it can create a world where no child goes to bed hungry. Since 1979, Feed the Children has grown into one of the largest U.S.-based charities collaborating with partners, donors and communities to make the most significant improvements possible and to hold itself accountable at every stop. Feed the Children is accredited by GuideStar Exchange and the BBB Wise Giving Alliance, maintains a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator and is also a member of InterAction.
Through its network of agencies, Feed the Children distributed more than $266 million in food, essentials, education supplies and medicine impacting close to 9 million individuals in the U.S. in 2014. Because education is the best way to help children escape poverty, Feed the Children helps children attend and finish school by distributing backpacks to homeless children and offering free books and supplies to educators. In 2014, Feed the Children provided $5.5 million worth of school supplies, close to 65,000 backpacks and more than 575,000 books to children.
“Feed the Children strives to provide hope and resources to those without life’s essentials,” said J.C. Watts, Jr., Feed the Children president and CEO. “We are honored to partner with Yamaha Motor Corporation in the fight to end hunger in America.”
“We are honored to be able to provide consistent and much-needed support for such an organization as Feed the Children; that in 20 years, has truly become part of our Yamaha ‘family’,” said Bob Starr, Corporate Communications Manager. “And we look forward to many more years of support both corporately and through affiliate organizations such as Star Touring and Riding that will continue to feed those so less fortunate!”
