One of the easiest, most effective ways a company can support Tango Charities is by offering its employees the option to give at work.
Employees can support Tango Charities and become an ally in the fight to end hunger by giving via payroll deductions or Team Feed Corporate (see more below). Employee giving in combination with corporate matching gifts provides vital resources for people facing hunger.
Remember: Your gift of $1 helps provide at least 4 meals for people facing hunger.
