NightFood® Donates Product to Chronic Connect, Supporting Caregivers of Patients with Chronic Illness
TARRYTOWN, NY, April 11, 2017 -- NightFood Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), a fully reporting “better-for-you” snack company, announced that it is donating several cases of NightFood nutrition bars to start-up charity Chronic Connect, Inc for their caregiver care packages.
Founded by Ilana Jacqueline, Chronic Connect Inc. seeks to serve the chronic illness community by providing resources and community for patients. The organization is committed to developing technology that allows patients to find local support, sending care packages to both patients and caregivers in need and creating programs for patient and caregiver support and education. They launched in April of 2017 and are currently applying for their 501(c)3 license.
"For patients like myself with chronic illness, support from friends and family tends to fade over time. These care packages let patients know they’re not forgotten,” offered Jacqueline. I’m grateful to Nightfood and the other companies that have helped make these care packages a reality, bringing some relief to patients in crisis."
“When Ilana E-mailed us asking for donations, she explained that caregivers often find themselves up at all hours of the night, exhausted, with few snack choices other than the junk options in the hospital vending machines,” explains NightFood CEO Sean Folkson. “I clicked over to her site and watched her video, and was very touched. This donation is a small gesture that can hopefully touch the lives of many caregivers and patients alike.”
Carri Levy, Ilana’s mother, added, "These care packages are filled with on-the-go snacks, pampering items, books, beauty products, games and notebooks to keep all the medical info on hand. It will be a relief to not have to wander the halls to satisfy a snack craving after a long day of advocating.”
As part of the program, NightFood donated approximately 150 snack bars to be included in Chronic Connect care packages.
