Marathon Cares is a way for us to continue our tradition of philanthropy, while also building awareness about some of the challenges facing the communities we serve. We are proud to support many local organizations and causes, some of which are listed below.
As we approached the holiday season of 2020, we talked about all of the challenges 2020 had on all of our lives, our businesses, and our communities. While we all had to learn how to navigate a new normal, we recognized that some of our neighbors in our communities had suffered greatly. For that reason, we decided as a company that in lieu of sending holiday baskets, we would instead make charitable donations to the following organizations within the communities we serve on behalf of all of our customers:
St. John’s Bread & Life
Food Bank for New York City
Food Bank of CNY
Northwest Buffalo Community Center
Child and Family Services of Erie County
Rescue Mission Alliance
Food Bank of Hudson Valley
Table to Table
Community Food Bank of NJ
Mercy Center for Women
St Martin Center, Inc.
Community Shelter Services of Erie
Maryland Food Bank
