Red Hat Cuts Their Own Holiday Party, Donates 800,000 Meals

Red Hat Linux Donates to Food Bank

Red Hat has set an example for us this Christmas season. Plans were made for a no-holds-barred holiday party. Instead, they decided to donate funds, food, and even coats. They are donating enough money to pay for 800,000 meals at the chosen food bank, Feeding America (formerly known as America’s Second Harvest). Economic troubles, resulting in fewer philanthropic donations, created a need. Red Hat rose to the occasion. Hats off to them for setting a great example for the rest of us. What a miracle and blessing it would be for many of other corporations followed in their footsteps.


“She (DeLisa Alexander) declined to say how much money Red Hat will donate, but it’s enough to pay for about 800,000 meals at food banks run by Feeding America. In the Triangle, the group runs the Food Bank of Eastern and Central North Carolina and the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.”

“Red Hat workers also are organizing canned food drives and other efforts in conjunction with the food bank donation. In Raleigh, executives will give cash for every 500 cans collected, Alexander said. Again, she declined to name a dollar amount. The company’s Dallas office is organizing a coat drive.”
