SEATTLE, Nov. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DoubleDown Interactive (NASDAQ: DDI) (“DoubleDown” or the “Company”), a leading gaming company, delivering unique player experiences across a variety of genres, will be donating $10,000 to Meals on Wheels America, the national leadership organization supporting community-based programs across the U.S., to help combat senior hunger and isolation during the holiday season.
“DoubleDown is proud to support the important work Meals on Wheels does in the communities across the country,” said In Keuk Kim, CEO of DoubleDown. “We first partnered with the national organization at the height of the pandemic in 2020, which received overwhelming support from our players. As a company committed to helping our community, we love that we can donate to a cause that resonates with both our players and employees.”
Support from DoubleDown comes at a critical time. In 2020, 1 in 158 seniors in the United States experienced food insecurity. During the pandemic, 88% of community-based Meals on Wheels programs have been affected by increases in safety supply costs, meal production expenses, and/or labor costs, making it more difficult to meet their mission to serve vulnerable seniors.
To garner support for their donation and to promote the work Meals on Wheels America does throughout the year, DoubleDown is inviting players to participate in a play-to-enter giveaway in their popular social casino game, DoubleDown Casino. On November 21, 2022, players are encouraged to enter the Season of Giving event by spinning 15 times on the featured slot for a chance to win 100,000,000 chips on the following day.
