(December 1, 2015) – The Pantry of Broward County, which provides hunger assistance, affordable housing, and other services to citizens of Broward Country who are in need, has announced their best ever “Giving Tuesday”.
AJT Systems is a software company in Broward County that develops real-time live to air graphics rendering and video server systems for the broadcast TV industry. Every year AJT Systems collects and matches donations to local charities, and this year AJT dedicated their donations to The Broward Pantry’s Giving Tuesday in order to help those in need this holiday season.
“Giving Tuesday”, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a movement to create an international day of giving. And with companies like Bank of America and AJT Systems matching donations, the Broward Pantry reported donations went much higher than their $20,000 goal.
About Broward Pantry:
The Pantry of Broward is a 501(c)3 organization registered with the State of Florida. The Pantry was founded in 2008 by Elizabeth “B.J. Buntrock,” a local philanthropist who saw the need for a charitable organization that could address the unique needs of seniors and grandparents raising their grandchildren on fixed incomes. In addition to providing its 425 clients with a 55-pound box of nutritional foods each month, The Pantry’s clinical director meets with each client to determine their additional needs (and those of the children they are raising) and assist them with applying for and obtaining food stamps (The Pantry is a community access partner for SNAP), government assistance, affordable housing, discounted utilities, transportation assistance and low-cost healthcare services, as needed.
