OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- In a rush to beat the clock, Tom Loker, founder of the WE Movement—an organization that provides a "search and match" networking program to connect those that have goods, products and services to those who desperately need them—is issuing an appeal today for a worthy charity such as a children's home, soup kitchen, senior center or other such organization(s) in need, to take possession of 60 cases of calzones, a lunch product manufactured by Azusa, Calif.-based Buena Vista foods.
"This generous offering will soon expire, literally," Loker explains. "The calzones have only four more months of shelf life before they will be tossed." In these tough economic times the WE Movement is doing exactly what it was meant to do. It is making good use of its online one-stop source—the HELP4U software program—to match Providers, those that have something to offer, with Recipients, those who legitimately need that offering.
Buena Vista, who is best known for serving the school food service industry, says the reduced fat calzone pocket sandwiches are filled with tasty mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. "Occasionally, we are able to offer some of our products to those who might go hungry," states Paul Miller, president of Buena Vista. "This batch of calzones is one example, but we need to place them soon. They expire in February 2011." According to Miller, each case contains 45 sandwiches.
Loker says the WE Movement, which was created to facilitate the coordination of resources in the areas of health care, financial services, housing, legal assistance, youth programs and education, has been a huge success since it launched in early August of this year. "With the government cutting back on much needed programs for the underserved, the WE Movement believes everyone should step up and help one another—neighbor to neighbor."
Loker, who says he is willing to deliver the calzones himself to one or more deserving organizations, says donations on WE are never monetary and they can be small or large, "We recently had someone donate some vocal lessons; another tutored a child in English. Everyone has something to offer and so many are in need." Loker stated. "We are especially grateful to Buena Vista for stepping up because this is the kind of community spirit we wish to foster."
In order to expedite the "calzone" offering, those eligible to receive the cases or those wishing to speak to either Tom Loker or Paul Miller may call KerrPR at (714) 550-9900.
