BOSTON, April 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pallas Capital Advisors, LLC ("Pallas Capital") and Wheels Up Partners, LLC ("Wheels Up") are pleased to announce their partnership in collaboration with the newly founded MEALS UP initiative. Led by CEO Kenny Dichter, Wheels Up undertook to supply 10 million meals to the food insecure and those facing hunger during the COVID-19 crisis through Feeding America, a hunger relief organization with an extensive network of food banks feeding the hungry across the country. In just a week's time Wheels Up met its goal and is now expanding the MEALS UP initiative.
"When Kenny shared his vision and message of unity, giving back to our country and helping those in need, we immediately got involved. Social responsibility continues to be the backbone of Pallas Capital. These are unprecedented times that have affected virtually everybody from all walks of life. I have witnessed firsthand the positive impact that can happen when individuals and organizations step up in a time of need," said Richard Mullen, Pallas Capital Co-Founder & Managing Director.
"This is the perfect opportunity for Pallas Capital and Wheels Up to further demonstrate how important it is to come together and give back during these challenging times. We, as a firm, are honored and excited to be actively involved as we continue to support this incredible cause," Greg Boyle, Pallas Capital Co-Founder & Managing Director commented.
