Brunch and laptops bring hope for St. John's Shelter families

Brunch and laptops bring hope for St. John's Shelter families

As part of its annual community service efforts, Visionary Integration Professionals (VIP) prepared and served brunch to families at St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children yesterday morning. The company's CEO, Jonna Ward, was also on hand to present the shelter with 10 Dell Laptop Computers. The majority of the laptops will be given to graduates of the program who are now attending a community college or university, with the rest remaining in the shelter’s career center or loaned out to members of its after-care program.

“Visionary Integration Professionals’ extremely generous donation will make such a huge difference in the lives of the mothers we serve, supporting them as they work toward a very different future for their families,” said Michele Steeb, executive director for St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children. “We are so grateful.”

Hunger is a reality for 1 in 8 Americans. You may not think you know anyone that is suffering, but millions are.

In California alone, nearly 27% of children don’t know where their meal will come from.

Raley’s Food For Families is one of the main givers of food for local food banks. Just one Food for Families bag can provide over 18 meals to a hungry family.

Donate at any Raley’s, Bel Air, Food Source stores, on-line at Raleys.com or on Facebook, now through Dec 31 and help in the fight to feed the hungry.  Raley’s Food For Families holiday bag program doubles customers’ charitable giving by offering a $10 bag of wholesome, nonperishable and fresh food valued at more than $20 to benefit local food banks. Donors can personally select where they want their donation to go, ensuring that 100% of their contribution will feed the hungry in their neighborhood.
