The Leadership Fremont Class, a yearly Fremont Chamber of Commerce program that cultivates future Bay Area leaders, will host the event.
As part of the leadership class’ Hometown Recipe for Hope project, class members at the reception will present Abode with a donation check that will pay for state-of-the-art kitchen equipment, appliances, and supplies for Sunrise Village Emergency Shelter.
The shelter, built in 1993, was Abode’s first permanent program site. A quarter-century later, it continues to provide essential safety net services to hundreds of families and individuals each year. Abode Services would especially like to thank Washington Hospital Healthcare System, the fundraising project’s Platinum Sponsor, whose generous donations have done so much to help those living at the shelter.
We also thank Cargill, Kaiser Permanente, and Amy Wilhelm for co-sponsoring this project. We greatly appreciate the many other individuals who contributed to the project and helped make it possible.
"The Leadership Fremont Class of 2018 is continuing a strong tradition of doing impressive work and good deeds for this community," said Abode Services Executive Director Louis Chicoine. "We thank class members, the Fremont Chamber of Commerce, and our supporters for giving so much to help those in our programs."
The reception will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 10, at the Fremont Police Department Training Center, at 2000 Stevenson Blvd. in Fremont. Light refreshments will be served. To attend, please RSVP by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Leadership Fremont Class of 2018 is accepting donations for the project until May 15.
