Last year, Goya Foods announced that it was donating one million cans of Goya chickpeas and one million pounds of food to food banks to help families during the COVID-19 pandemic. In return for its good deed, some on the left tried to “cancel” the company after its CEO, Robert Unanue, complimented former President Donald Trump at a press conference while announcing the donation.
Now, the company, which has a long history of giving, has announced a $2 million gift to combat human trafficking. The company is also launching a new initiative, Goya Cares, to raise awareness around the issue.
Unanue, alongside a host of other guests, announced the gift at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday morning.
“Let us bring the child back,” Unanue said. “Our mission is to bring the child back to the center of our care and concern … All of us desire to be cared for and to care for others.”
The company announced that Goya Cares will be a global initiative “dedicated to eliminating child trafficking both domestically and internationally.” Red more by Zachary Mettler for The Daily Citizen.
