CLEVELAND, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Brunswick, OH-based real estate investment company Sesa Properties LLP, who buys houses for cash in Greater Cleveland has pledged to donate 200 meals to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank for every property they sell.
"One of the major goals of Sesa Properties from the start has been to improve the communities of Greater Cleveland," said Daniel Sarao, Co-Owner and Managing Partner. "Individuals in the local community are struggling and need some help."
The Greater Cleveland Food Bank released a statement on August 13, 2020, urging Congress to increase the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefit by 15%.
The statement came as The Greater Cleveland Food Bank struggles to meet the recent, unprecedented increase in local families that are depending on them for food.
According to The Greater Cleveland Food Bank's August 13th, 2020 statement, "more than 1.5 million Ohioans have filed for unemployment since March."
Further, "nearly 30,000 new families have visited [their] network of emergency food programs for the first time over the past five months."
The number of households that visit the organization's drive-through event has reached over 2,200 households per week (at the time of the August press release).
The food bank's call for help to Congress and businesses sparked Sesa Properties' owners to act.
"We're not the largest company in Cleveland by any means, but we do want to help people who are struggling, especially for such a basic necessity. The Greater Cleveland Food Bank has stepped up to help the community during the pandemic, and we also want to do something to help," said Sarao.
"We would love to see other local Cleveland businesses join in. Even if it's a small contribution. Anything will help," said Vince Senauskas, Co-Owner of Sesa Properties who is a Brunswick native and graduate of Cleveland State University.
