By: Joshua's Heart Foundation
On Friday, April 24th, Joshua's Heart Foundation and the City of North Miami Beach hosted a community event that distributed much-needed food and daily essentials to 480 families experiencing layoffs and lack of resources due to COVID-19 shutdown. The front door stop-knock-drop and roll delivery was sponsored by Teleperformance, the global leader in customer experience management, and featured boxes of food and essentials provided by hunger relief organization Feed the Children, Miami-Dade County along with drinks and perishables by Joshua's Heart and Me and the Bees Lemonade. Local U-Haul of North Miami Beach, led by Manager, Tony Edmonds and Marketing Company President, Frank Grau, aided the cause with a sponsorship of 10 vans that transported the deliveries to all 480 families struggling to make ends meet.
Families were pre-selected by the City of North Miami Beach and all received a 4-pack of lemonade, fresh whole chicken, pasta, a 25-pound box of shelf-stable food such as canned vegetables, cereal, peanut butter and mac 'n cheese; and a 15-pound box of essentials with personal-care items such as shampoo, conditioner, hand sanitizer, wipes and grooming items.
As the jobless rate soars past 22 million nationwide and possibly reaching 22% by the summer, the highest since the great depression, more than 1.15 million Floridians have filed for unemployment due to COVID-19. The effect of social distancing and the economic shut down will continue to adversely affect seniors and those living below the poverty level more than any other populations for months to come. Data shows that today, most people are spending their stimulus checks on food. All food, household and personal essential items provided for recipients of this and many other communities like this, will continue to help feed children at-risk of missing important daily meals and those unable to participate in drive-by distributions. Joshua's Heart and the City of North Miami Beach plan to continue serving these communities as long as supplies last. Donations are being accepted at https://joshuasheart.org.
