For GOLO, the health and wellness solutions company from Delaware, finding meaningful ways to give back to the local community is a top corporate priority. From its inception, GOLO has given back and will continue to do so as the company grows its footprint in the local community.

“We’re incredibly proud to support the important work and services provided by community-based organizations in the state of Delaware,” said Jennifer Brooks, Co-founder and President of GOLO.  “These organizations are making real and tangible differences in the lives of individuals and families.”

As part of its ongoing commitment to the community, GOLO continues to invest in many partnerships with local charitable groups and non-profits across the First State.

Fighting Hunger and Food Insecurity with The Food Bank of Delaware:

The mission of the Food Bank of Delaware is to inspire hope in our communities by providing food to nourish Delawareans, while collaborating on long-term solutions to combat hunger and poverty.

The Food Bank of Delaware is one of several local food banks, food pantries, and community-based organizations taking part in GOLO’s food donation program, which is designed to provide access to healthy and nutritionally balanced meals from the company’s GOLO Foods line of products to those in need.

“We are grateful for GOLO’s support in fighting food insecurity in our community,” said Food Bank of Delaware President and CEO Cathy Kanefsky. “GOLO has invested in the health and wellbeing of all members of our community. They share our commitment to ensuring that our neighbors in need have access to nutritious foods so they can live healthier, brighter lives. When everyone in our community is healthy, we all win.”

Meeting the Needs of the Community with the Delaware Regional Dream Center:

Delaware Regional Dream Center is a volunteer-driven charitable organization that finds the forgotten and helps them build a firm foundation so they will flourish in life. In addition to providing much-needed funding to assist with the purchase of winter coats for children and families in need, GOLO and its employees take part in a company-wide clothing drive to support the community served by the Delaware Regional Dream Center.

“With the support of companies like GOLO, we are able to provide targeted community outreach programs for individuals and families here in Delaware by delivering resources and coordinating services that fulfill life’s necessities,” said Matt Morrison, Executive Director for the Delaware Regional Dream Center.  “Our goal is to motivate those individuals to achieve a more fulfilled standard of living as we create, develop, and implement sustainable programs to address our community’s needs.”

Building Better Communities with Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County:

Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County is an independently chartered affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, the largest not-for profit builder in the world. Habitat NCC is committed to changing lives and landscapes by revitalizing neighborhoods and empowering the families we serve. GOLO supports various Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County mission-driven initiatives, including critical repair projects and Aging in Place programs.

“GOLO’s investment fuels our endeavors, ensuring substantial resources are channeled towards programming that uplifts and sustains low- to moderate-income households throughout New Castle County,” said Kevin L. Smith, Chief Executive Officer, Habitat for Humanity, New Castle County.

Mental Well-being with the Mental Health Association in Delaware:

The Mental Health Association in Delaware promotes improved mental well-being for all individuals and families in Delaware through education, support, and advocacy. As a health and wellness company, GOLO supports the Mental Health Association in Delaware’s mission to strengthen knowledge and resources around mental health and recovery.
