SKOUT and SF-Marin food bank partnered this year in the hopes of feeding 20,000 for the March 14 celebration. The SKOUT has several features, including the ability to send virtual gifts to friends and acquaintances who are also users. SKOUT decided to encourage users to send more gifts to one another and promised that for each virtual gift sent, the company would give an actual gift of cash to the food bank, and would keep giving until some 20,000 meals had been provided. The company even encouraged employees to get involved in the food drive and give back to the communities in which they live and work.
