AID FOR OAKLAND RESIDENTS STRUGGLING WITH HIGH COST OF LIVING
‘Aid to Humanity’ Continues Across U.S. from Felix Y. Manalo Foundation, Inc.
WHAT: 3,000 care packages of nonperishable food, hygiene kits, and FREE school supplies will be available to all residents and families in need in East Oakland, surrounding neighborhoods and extended bay area during an Aid to Humanity community outreach of the Felix Y. Manalo (FYM) Foundation, Inc., the charitable institution of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC or Church of Christ).
These free services aim to help combat the rising cost of living in the area. All community members across the bay area are welcome to benefit from the services, food, live band and gospel choir entertainment for the whole family.
Local organizations will also be recognized and gifted monetary donations from the FYM Foundation to support the community’s programs.
The FYM Foundation has aligned itself with two of the City of Oakland’s established priorities: Community Involvement and Empowerment – assisting in the effective programs for youth, seniors and those with disabilities to thrive; and Public-Private Partnerships: raising funds to deliver needed programs and services.
Oakland is only one of eight regions in the U.S. to receive Aid to Humanity from the FYM Foundation this month, as part of its global aim to provide opportunity for those most in need, and contribute to supporting peaceful and productive communities.
