FESCO participated in a donation drive through a co-marketing effort with Rita’s Italian Ice on April 14th. The first 50 people that brought school supplies to donate to FESCO received a free ice as well as coupons for a free treat once a week for a year! The event was advertised locally in flyers and posters, g, social media campaigns, and a television advertisement on the Bravo channel! The event was a great success. People lined up at 5:00am and created quite a scene on Castro Valley Blvd. They filled a 55 gallon drum to the top with pencils, papers, rulers, calculators, and other school supplies.
On April 13th, FESCO Executive Director Gay McDaniel was a special guest on local radio station 96.5 KOIT. During the 30 minute segment, Gay spoke about the needs of homeless families, the services that we provide, and information about the upcoming Shelter Shuffle Walkathon fundraiser.
