As students settle back into their school routines, whether they are attending virtually or in person, it’s imperative they can focus on their schoolwork without being distracted by their environment or lack of food and resources. Dorcas Helping Hands, a Good360 nonprofit partner, works to assist those within the community who need food, shelter, or clothing. Their mission helps families and their students meet basic needs, which is the foundation of what they require to excel in school.
Thanks to Amazon and the Amazon FBA Donations program, families could pick up various items for their households at an event held by Dorcas Helping Hands. The founder of the organization describes how the process went for individuals who benefited from the donations.
“Families were very excited about our giveaway,” said Gail Harrison, Dorcas Helping Hands founder. “Each household received according to their household size. Because children have returned back to school, it is important that they have good clean bedding and utensils in their homes.”
One man stopped by the organization’s office to express his gratitude. The donated product came at a time when he was working through financial struggles. After the event, he didn’t have to worry about purchasing new household appliances or bedding.
As families continue to settle into their school and work routines, they now have less to worry about with the items donated by Amazon and the Amazon FBA Donations program.
