The Blessing Corner

The Blessing Corner is a Good360 nonprofit partner that strives to bring hope to people living in Bakersfield, California, by providing access to community events, health and wellness classes, and disaster preparedness training.

After receiving two pallets of donated items from Ross, a Good360 corporate partner, The Blessing Corner held an Easter-themed giveaway for more than 700 community members who received new toys, clothing, household goods, toiletries, and more.

“We had an amazing community event that served hundreds of our neighbors,” said Althea Gillette Turner, Executive Director at The Blessing Corner. “The children received Easter baskets filled with toys and participated in fun events, including an Easter egg hunt. While the kids enjoyed their activities, parents and other attendees picked up donated items they could use in their households to help stretch their budgets. Thank you to Ross and Good360 for being amazing community partners.”

Contributions from Ross gave families access to essential items and gifts to enjoy during the Easter holiday and helped Good360 close the need by making a long-term impact on communities across the country.
