Latino Chamber Committee Toy Donation with Samaritan House Laura Bent, COO

On Tuesday 19, 2019 the Latino Chamber Committee of the San Mateo Chamber of Commerce, organized a mixer and toy drive for the benefit of Samaritan House San Mateo. We got together at the beautiful San Mateo Marriott San Francisco SFO. We had Laura Bent, COO of Samaritan House and other business representatives. Samaritan House is one of San Mateo's leading non-profits. They offer free services to our community including "shelter and housing assistance; medical and dental clinics; clothes for children; personalized case management and much more".

Laura Bent, COO, shared how their food pantry which distributes food gives recipients an annual savings of over $7,700. Their food program for people in need is a robust one. They have been helping the community's less fortunate, by providing food essentials, including daily bread. Annually they provide 198,920 freshly prepared hot meals and over 47,000 bags of groceries. That's over 1,375,622 meals annually for people in need. Many of them whom are children.

Their holiday program provides toys and meals to families in need. This holiday program runs from Halloween, Thanksgiving and thru the December Holiday season. Here you can find more information about hosting a donation drive to meet the needs of families in the Peninsula.

We were delighted to have in attendance, a champion of small business and organizer of Latino chambers Joe Partida of Partida Benefits & Insurance ( CA 0579109). Joe can help your company with employee and executive benefit plans, health, dental, vision and life insurance, 401(K), profit sharing and pension plans among other things. Joe's support and guidance in reigniting the San Mateo Chamber of Commerce has been invaluable.

Others in attendance were Robert Huibers, Branch Manager of Movement Mortgage L.L.C.

A representative from Skylawn Memorial Park & Funeral Home.

Maria Barreda, Account Executive at Johnson & Dugan

Juan Arroyave of Edward Jones Investments.

We also had in attendance the recipient of the "Business of the Year 2019" for the Northern Region of California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, Guillermo Moran, President and CEO of Eco Delight Coffee Co. Congratulations again and much success!
