FALL RIVER — The annual count of the city’s homeless population was conducted this week, followed by an inaugural services event at the First Step Inn shelter, 134 Durfee St.
Provided bagged lunches for the unhoused in Fall River. Our employees donate nonperishables, decorated lunch bags, write encouraging notes and make sandwiches. Our bags are filled to the brim with fruit, sandwiches and other snacks.
We provided over 200 backpacks to families in Fall River. The Boys and Girls Club visited our facility and picked up their new backpacks to start the year off on the right foot.
Memorial 5K We participated in the 5K, donated product and helped to coordinate the race.
Annual event that helps provide social services to the homeless community in Fall River. Blount served food to the attendees and provided information of Blount employment opportunities
Employees donated money, toys and clothing to the children in foster care at BoysTown. We “adopted” 8 children and were given a wish list for each of them. Employees raised money and purchased items on list and we gave them to the facility to hand out to the children. So much money was raised that we were able to purchase sports equipment for the spring and passes to beaches any other location in RI/MA for the children to experience outings throughout the year.
The Blount team was happy to assist in feeding and entertaining the kids at the Fall River, MA Salvation Army.
When they were finished eating, Patrick from IT showed them some magic using cups! They were very appreciative.
