November 29, 2021 GMT

EWING, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 29, 2021--

L’il Critters TM, America’s #1 Children’s Gummy Vitamin Brand, a Church & Dwight Co., Inc. brand, is continuing their partnership with Feed the Children, a leading nonprofit focused on alleviating childhood hunger, to support its No Hunger Holidays campaign that helps to create a hunger-free season for families struggling with food insecurity and poverty across the U.S. L’il Critters is launching a donation match campaign between Giving Tuesday (Nov. 30, 2021) and Dec. 30, 2021, to match donations up to $50,000 [1], which directly goes towards food distribution, personal care and household essentials, and education materials to thousands of children and families.

“We’re thrilled to help Feed the Children provide supplemental meals and daily essentials and create an impact for vulnerable families facing hardships this holiday season,” says John Bullock, Brand Manager for L’il Critters. “This Giving Tuesday, we hope that people are inspired to lend a hand as more families this year are struggling economically.” The nonprofit’s annual campaign aims to provide much-needed food and daily essentials to at-risk families trying to make ends meet throughout the holiday season, having an even greater bearing on families affected by health and economic challenges from recent years.

“The L’il Critters and Church & Dwight Co., Inc., partnership means so very much to Feed the Children, and more importantly, to the families we serve,” said Travis Arnold, president and CEO, Feed the Children. “We believe that no child should go to bed hungry, especially during a time full of warmth, love and sharing. L’il Critters and Church & Dwight Co., Inc. are a critical part of providing compassionate support to those who are facing tough decisions about how to care for their families.”

In April 2020, as families began to struggle with the impact of COVID-19, the percentage of food-insecure households was estimated to be between 22-38%. In contrast, in 2016 only 12.3% of households were food insecure [2] in the U.S. Every $10 given helps provide 60 meals for struggling families this holiday season.
