Coconut Creek, Fla.-based Food For The Poor, one of the largest international relief and development organizations in the nation, honored Orlando-area philanthropists for past support during its recent Celebration of Hope Gala, including Consensus Co-Founder Tre’ Evers and his wife, Kathleen.
Celebrating 20 years of serving the poor, Food For The Poor provides emergency relief assistance, clean water, medicine, educational materials, homes, support for orphaned or abandoned children, care for the aged, skills training and micro-enterprise development assistance.
The organization has provided more than 1,000 homes, helping shelter 6,000 adults and children over the last 20 years thanks to the many contributions of generous donors.
“They provide security and safety, and most of all, they provide hope. Hope for the future, and hope for the poorest of the poor,” said Kathleen.
Among the 2019 Ambassadors For The Poor honorees were Lisa and Dwight Saathoff, Mayte and Ralph Asencio, Marriott Hotels, and Louise and Patrick Rainey.
