Gina Spence Productions [GSP] is partnering with delivery company Sargasso Sea to help families during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ms. Spence said, “We understand the importance of ensuring that basic needs of children and families are meet especially during the coronavirus pandemic. These are extremely difficult times; many of our families are working class families who depend on their weekly pay checks to provide food and medicine for their children.
“Some of our parents are essential workers and are also working on the front line of this pandemic in very stressful conditions. Others are out of work and are not eligible for the Government Unemployment Benefit. Our clients come from single parent homes due to the death of a loved one as a result of gun violence.
“The GSP board voted unanimously in support of providing 100% of the families that we serve with food and medicine for their children. All 23 families, including two families in the UK, will receive gift cards for food and medicine to ensure that the needs of every child in our Champions program are met.
“Thanks to the generous donations of donors and our annual fundraising efforts, GSP can provide gift cards total valued $2,800.
“Due to the shelter in place mandate, GSP has partnered with the Sargasso Sea delivery company, who will be delivering the gift cards to our Champions as a gift in kind in support of the community outreach work that GSP provides.
“GSP is excited and grateful for the partnership with Sargasso as it bridges the gap between those in need and providing the vehicle to connect them to the resources.”
Collin Rego, founder and CEO of Sargasso Sea, said, “On behalf of the Sargasso management team, we would be glad to provide delivery services to all 23 of your children and families at no charge.”
Ms. Spence said, “He also wished our Champions families [strength] during these unusual times.
“GSP has been privileged to serve our community for over three decades. Through our Champions program, we have provided grief counselling, food, medicine, toys and school uniforms to our Champions and the community at large.
“We believe it is important to come alongside the Government to provide support to at-risk families. We are blessed to have such great support from our community, donors, and board of directors. It is our goal to continue to provide these much-needed services to the families in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
