The Gallo Gives Foundation Awards Community Donations

Berkshire Vertical Cmyk

Proud to be in the fourth year of making a difference in the community in which it lives and serves, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty’s Gallo Gives Foundation awarded several of its 2020 first-quarter earnings donations to the Food Bank of Delaware, Community Resource Center, Beebe Medical Foundation, #CORONACRUSH, Harry K Foundation, and Bayhealth Foundation. The total donated for this series of giving was $9,500.

– $3,000 was awarded to the Food Bank of Delaware. Its mission is to provide nutritious foods to Delawareans in need and facilitate long-term solutions to the problems of hunger and poverty through community education and advocacy. The food bank works to achieve this by: providing low- and no-cost food to qualified feeding programs throughout the greater Delaware region; informing the greater Delaware community about hunger issues and food security; mobilizing support for anti-hunger efforts; training and empowering under- and unemployed individuals to fill needed positions within the foodservice, warehousing/logistics and agricultural industries; and developing and implementing statewide nutrition programs to assist low-income families, individuals, and children. The funds donated will go towards the Covid-19 relief efforts. To support the Food Bank of Delaware, visit https://www.fbd.org

– $1,500 was dedicated to Community Resource Center (CRC). The CRC assists low-income individuals and families in times of need. It offers a centralized location where residents in the local community can come when they are facing a crisis. The purpose is to assess the needs of individuals and families, identify and coordinate the use of community resources, support individuals and families during their time of uncertainty, provide financial assistance based on need, and create partnerships in the community.   To offer assistance to the CRC, visit https://www.rehobothcommunitycenter.org

– $1,500 was donated to Beebe Medical Foundation. The foundation has been raising money to help fulfill Beebe Healthcare’s not-for-profit charitable mission, which is to encourage healthy living, prevent illness, and restore optimal health to the people residing, working, or visiting the communities it serves. As an independent, not-for-profit hospital, Beebe Healthcare could not serve the growing community without local philanthropy. Beebe Medical Foundation has also established an endowment fund to ensure Beebe Healthcare will always be available to the community. Beebe has a proud history of more than 100 years of service and continues to be the primary healthcare provider in seven locations throughout Sussex County. The funds donated will go towards the Covid-19 relief efforts. To contribute to the foundation visit, https://www.beebehealthcare.org/beebe-medical-foundation

– $1,500 was given to Beebe Medical Foundation specifically for #CRUSHCORONA.  Monies were donated for restaurant gift cards to be purchased for Beebe Healthcare employees for the #CrushCorona initiative. This initiative set a goal for providing a $25 restaurant gift card to every one of Beebe Healthcare’s 2,900 employees. It aims to give at least one hot meal to each of Beebe’s employees after a long shift, all while supporting local restaurants. Individuals may donate directly online ($25 increments) on the Beebe Covid-19 Relief site. Put “Crush Corona” in the message box on the form. The Beebe Medical Foundation team will use all money donated with that tag to buy $25 gift certificates from as many local restaurants as possible.

-$1,000 was awarded to The Harry K Foundation. The foundation disperses funds through the Delaware Food Bank to support School Backpack Programs, as well as establish and institute school pantries throughout Delaware. The Harry K Foundation works closely with the food bank, staying in constant contact, communicating, and coordinating where and when and to whom the trust will benefit the most. Through the carefully selected committee, and knowledgeable experts, the hope is to appropriate the funding to best serve and meet the nutritional needs of children within Delaware, so no child is left hungry.
