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