George Pelgrim partners with Forever Blessed Foundation
By: The Forever Blessed Foundation
According to Ms. Peterson, The Forever Blessed Foundation was started at her home when her son went away to Holland to study, and had lots of clothes that he couldn't take with him. Her son was a little apprehensive to give away his belongings, even though the clothes probably wouldn't fit him when he came back from Holland. Jenny told him "one man's trash is another man's treasure", and with some persuasion he finally agreed to let his mother donate his clothing. This would be the beginning of what would become a 20 year career in charitable acts which would later be called The Forever Blessed Foundation.
The name "Forever Blessed" Foundation says it all. Ms. Peterson believes that it's important to take your blessings and pay them forward. That's how you continue to stay forever blessed.
Following her lead, other courageous members of the community have seen Ms. Peterson's great work, and decided to lend a helping hand as well. In 2019, the foundation was in need of a vehicle to help make food deliveries. Being a non-profit organization comes with it's challenges, and one of Jenny's neighbors answered the call to help ease the burden of doing this noble work without receiving any funding. The Foundation was able to purchase a pick-up truck, thanks to the help of Ms. Peterson's neighbor who sold it for nearly half of what him and his wife were originally selling it for. The truck was used, and needed some repairs, but despite it's age and normal wear and tear, the foundation was able to utilize it to collect food from donors, as well as deliver food to families in need.
Another member of the community who is very active with his philanthropic endeavors of his own, Mr. George Pelgrim also caught wind of the great work Ms. Peterson has been doing. Mr. Pelgrim reached out to the foundation and asked if there's anything he can do to support them and help in any way possible. After meeting, and making several food deliveries with Ms. Peterson, George Pelgrim and his company St. Maarten Shipping and Stevedoring (SSS) decided to give the foundation's pickup truck a much needed face-lift, and repair it to an almost brand-new working condition.
