Family -to-Family Partnership
BGCMB is excited to announce its new partnership with Family-to-Family. An organization that will help bring much needed resources to our families! Family-to-Family was started nine years ago by Hastings-on-Hudson, New York mom and entrepreneur Koner, who was heartsick after reading a newspaper article about the impoverished community of Pembroke, Illinois, one of the poorest towns in the nation. “We have to do something,” Koner told her two daughters. She convinced 16 neighbors to join her in buying and sending groceries to 17 needy Pembroke families. Since then, Family-to-Family has expanded to over 400 donating families who provide food and friendship to hungry families in 21 communities across the United States. We are honored to work with the Family-to-Family organization and look forward to more opportunities to continue supporting our youth and their families!
