A hometown recipe for hope

Submitted By Leadership Fremont Class of 2018

Each night, 2,100 individuals sleep in a sheltered environment instead of on the streets, due to the efforts of Abode Services. Since 2010, Abode has helped 6,248 people secure permanent housing. Leadership Fremont, a nine-month program of the Fremont Chamber of Commerce, to develop local leaders with the skills and network to address community needs today and in the future, applauds Abode Services and wants to help.

The Leadership Class of 2018 has decided to focus its efforts on an urgent need at AbodeÕs Sunrise Village facility. Sunrise Village, the only shelter of its kind in the Bay Area, was specially designed and built to house homeless families and single adults in an efficient and dignified manner, needs to update its kitchen facilities. Leadership FremontÕs goal is to replace dated equipment in the Sunrise Village commercial kitchen that serves three meals a day to approximately 250 individuals on any given day.

Our goal, with your generous support, is to raise $40,900. Excess funds will be used to purchase food and kitchen supplies. Join us by making a charitable contribution to nurture the health and well-being of the children and adults at Sunrise Village.

To donate online, visit: abodeservices.org or gofundme.com/FLA2018-ABODE. Checks can be mailed to Abode Services, 40849 Fremont Boulevard, Fremont CA 94538. Please make your check out to ÒAbode ServicesÓ and put ÒLeadership Fremont 2018Ó in the memo line. All donations are tax-deductible.

Leadership Fremont will also sponsor an ÒOlympic EventÓ at Campo di Bocce to support hometown figure skating phenom Karen Chen and contribute to Abode ServicesÕ Sunrise Village. The event will take place on February 20th & 22nd (details of this event will be published soon).

Thank you for your Support!
