The Skout application is one of the most popular offerings when it comes to bringing people closer together. It is designed to help individuals find like minded people not only where they are currently located, but really in any corner of the globe. With that being said, the application is more than just an app designed to help people find one another. It is also doing good in the world as well. In fact, the application and the company behind it recently fed 20,000 people in San Francisco and Marin due to an outreach program it conducted through the application.
Skout is based out of San Francisco, so it has a direct connection with the city itself. March 14 us dubbed National Potato Chip Day, so Skout decided it would be the perfect opportunity to raise money and to feed the homeless and the less fortunate on this day with a quality meal. Due to this, the company create an online campaign for its users to send out virtual bags of the chip to other people on the application. For every virtual bag of chips sent, the company would in turn donate a meal wot the San Francisco Marin Food Bank.
The owner and CEO of Skout pointed out that people, especially in the San Francisco area, are facing one of the largest gaps between the money they make and their current expenses. Due to this, more and more people are not finding the necessary income required to pay for the bills and to purchase food for themselves and their family. With this growing number of individuals struggle to make ends meet, every single meal they are able to receive from an outside source truly helps.
This is not the first time Skout did something such as this. Last year, the company partnered with San Francisco Marin Food Bank in order to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day.
