Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL) says it was a Grand Benefactor Sponsor at the Congregation B’nai Israel (CBI) 36th Annual Feed the Hungry Event in Boca Raton. The annual event (in 2019 on Nov. 26) served more than 4,000 people.
“It is because of our generous sponsors that we were able to feed thousands in the community a warm holiday meal, who might otherwise have gone without! What a great way to kick off the season of giving,” says Congregation B’nai Israel special project manager Minda Shaiman.
CBI has partnered with Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church for 36 years to provide a Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings, pies, cakes, cookies, and more to individuals and families who would otherwise go without during the holidays. CBI partners with local restaurants and country clubs, businesses, individuals and community groups each year. Donations & sponsorship opportunities range from purchasing a turkey to sponsoring a plate, half a table, tent, an ice cream cart, or becoming a family sponsor/benefactor.
“This annual event is fantastic and helps so many in need. We love sponsoring this each year!” VGCFL operators director Sandra Lawson said in a statement.
“While food insecurity in South Florida continues to decline in households, there is a growing number of individuals who don’t qualify for federal nutrition programs and therefore have to rely on emergency programs,” said Paco Vélez, president and CEO of Feeding South Florida.
