Families in Transition Seek Community Donations to Fund Purchase of Holiday Gifts
Salinas, CA (November 30, 2017) – Sun Street Centers today announced that its Family Recovery Community at Pueblo del Mar in Marina is launching a holiday drive to fund children’s gifts.
Pueblo del Mar is a partnership between Sun Street Centers and the County of Monterey Housing Authority. The Family Recovery Center, run by Sun Street Centers, operates on property owned by the Housing Authority. The program is the first of its kind in Monterey County, giving homeless families who have completed a residential recovery program, or who can document they have participated in a 12-step Sobriety Program for at least three months, the opportunity for a new start.
Marilyn Anderson, Program Director of Family Services at Sun Street Centers, had this to say, “Many of our residents at Pueblo del Mar Family Recovery Community are single parents. All are in recovery and it’s often a struggle to provide basic necessities. Any donation, whether monetary or tangible, would be greatly appreciated”.
The facility served 144 people last year, including men, women and their children. Among the current residents are 86 children, ranging from infants to teens. Their goal is to raise a total of $3,440 (or $40 per child) by December 15th, 2017. Gifts can be made at: https://sunstreetcenters.org/get-involved/donate.
In addition, Scholl & Company LLP has a “giving tree” at their office, located at: 18275 Meadow Song Way in Corral de Tierra. Collected through mid-December, the gifts will be delivered to the children at Pueblo del Mar on Dec 20th.
