Foothill Family Shelter Summer News
Happy Summer!! Happy 4th of July!!!
July is here and it brings warm weather, picnics, vacations, and summer fun. It is a time for families to join together and enjoy the outdoors. It is also a time the Foothill Family Shelter experiences its greatest need for food. The summer is a busy time and there are very few food drives that are held and our Food Pantry does not get replenished and many families in need receive less. If you could please consider donating a few cans of non-perishable food it would be very much appreciated by the Foothill Family Shelter and the families we serve. Thank you !!!!
Save The Date
Although October is several months away, we are very excited to announce our upcoming fundraiser, “The Sky’s The Limit.” This 40’s themed event will be held on October 1st at The Cable Airport in Upland. There will be great food, great music, great auction items and all for aGREAT cause.
Please contact us for more information. There are also sponsorship opportunities as well as program ads available.
It’s The Start Of Our New Fiscal Year
2010-2011 was a financially challenging year for Foothill Family Shelter and we were faced with many difficult decisions. In spite of the economic downfall, we served over 10,000 families through our Harold’s Help Desk. 98% of our clients successfully completed the 120-day transitional housing program, participating in our mandatory savings program, case management, counseling and family activities. Over 85% of our shelter residents secured permanent housing. It’s statistics like these that validate the day-to-day work we do at Foothill Family Shelter.
As we transition into 2011-2012, we are pleased to announce our new Board Officers:
President: Clyde Helton
Vice President: Jack Duncan
Treasurer: Helene Blumner
Secretary: Kay Alexander
Our Board of Directors holds an integral part in our operation and we thank them very much for their commitment, dedication and expertise.
