A special thank you to our corporate partner Kolmar Americas for donating a very large assortment of blankets, backpacks, towels, and hygiene products for distribution to our clients this holiday season and throughout the winter. Kolmar matched contributions made by their employees, thereby doubling the impact of their gifts. Debbie Gianni (left) and Elena Bezus (right) from Kolmar met today with Veronica Vidal, Manager of Homeless Services at Fellowship Place. The agency’s daytime drop-in program for the homeless has served over 175 individuals since July 1. Kolmar’s gifts will be a big help, especially for the unsheltered.
Today was a wonderful day for Fellowship Place. Kolmar Americas and American GreenFuels donated $10,000 to provide approximately 3,500 meals and food bags for distribution to individuals served by the agency for the duration of the Coronavirus crisis. Many of the agency’s clients rely on the agency for at least 1-2 meals per day and for daily structure and support. The current public health crisis we face is especially scary and disruptive to those with limited resources and few if any natural supports. Fellowship Place remains open for limited hours and is providing “to go” meals and access to other basic needs like showers and laundry for about 75 clients a day. Corporate partners like Kolmar Americas and American GreenFuels help make it all possible.
