NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - April 8, 2020 - PRLog -- To support the many families unable to participate in the pop-up drive-by grocery distributions offered throughout South Florida, Joshua's Heart Foundation (JHF), local NFL star and North Miami Beach  native Johnathan Cyprien, and the City of North Miami Beach (NMB) joined forces to deliver 2 weeks' worth of badly-needed groceries and household essentials to pre-selected residents.

This delivery which served 426 families and 15 Kosher families was made possible through the partnership between JHF and the City of NMB, a $4,000.00 donation from Cyprien's Cypsquad ARY Foundation and other financial support from Joshua's Heart and their long-standing sponsors Howard and Stephanie Krass. Additional in-kind donations from Nick & Teresa Sharp of Threefold, JCS Community Kosher Food Bank and Broward Meat and Fish went a long way to supplement much needed essential items. Employees from Joshua's Heart, the City of North Miami Beach and NMB Police Department personnel executed no-contact deliveries to families living below the poverty level.
