The October 2020 PUSH Favor event was lead by our very own Tony Tyson by way of his non-profit organization From Our Hearts To Yours (FOHTY).
He single handedly crafted a plan prior to the pandemic to create 100 packages initially, which soon after the GoFundMe launched for this initiative, successfully raised over $1600.00, enough for 200+ care packages.
The goal was to help 200 individuals and/or families in need. It’s safe to say that mission was completed. Tony and I would like to give a big thank you to the PUSH Community and the broader local community for contributing to the GoFundMe in an effort to make this happen. FOHTY and PUSH have the same overarching goal; to make the world a better place by helping others. Doing so together simply allows us to cover more ground than we would be able to do apart.
A few members of the PUSH Community got together early Saturday morning to set up, prep, and package bottled water, bars of soap, granola bars, toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, and washcloths into gallon size zip lock bags.
We completed the packaging and delivered half of the packages to the Central Union Mission Shelter afterwards.
The other half were to be delivered to Sasha Bruce House. The day was a great success. COVID abruptly changed our March plans for this event seven months ago. I’m extremely happy to say that it didn’t keep us from executing on our plans permanently. Times like these are when we need to be willing to assist others in need, even more. Please follow Tony and his organization’s (FOHTY) journey on social here.
FOHTY and the PUSH Community will be teaming up for more community and charitable events in the future. We will keep you posted on how you can help or participate if you’re interested.
