With the craziest shopping days of the year come and gone, we shift our focus on something very near and dear to our hearts. Today, we celebrate Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving that kicks off the charitable season. Coming on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there is no better time to look past the material items and focus in on those in need. Therefore, EatStreet will be donating $1,000 to the Dane County Humane Society which will benefit animals in need of care and medical resources.
When getting a feel around the office of what kind of charity we should donate to, the answer revealed itself quickly. Pets, especially pups, are a staple of the EatStreet headquarters. They make work more like home, give everyone a built in excuse to step away from their desks or computers for a bit and excitedly run around the office. Not a day goes by where we don’t see something like:

We love our friendly, furry and (sometimes) feathery animals, and there’s no better reflection of that love that donating to the Humane Society.
However, the Humane Society is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to charities that need help on not only days like today but every day. You can go to the Giving Tuesday website to find countless other charities that could use your time, money or other resources.
Since our founding days from a small apartment in Madison, to where we find ourselves today, EatStreet’s unwavering belief in giving back to our community is part of our culture. Through the generosity and patience of our parents, friends, mentors and customers, we have experienced growth, and we want to give back to Madison. Just this month, our extremely competitive teams rallied to donate over 3,000 Thanksgiving meal essentials to the Goodman Community Center. Furthermore, throughout this year we’ve donated time to delivering Meals on Wheels, peddled in the Bike For Boys & Girls Club and put on our best apron to bake pies for the Goodman Center.
Giving back is important to us and we’re so happy that EatStreet employees have taken it on themselves, to show the same kind of generosity that once benefited us. We hope you’ll take time this Giving Tuesday to donate our volunteer for a cause that matters most to you.
