Local Cincinnati Commercial Real Estate Office Helps Feed Cincinnati Homeless
Cincinnati, Ohio – 01/04/2018 – On December 23, Laurence Bergman and Billy Gillman with NAI Bergman, together with a group of colleagues, family, and friends, purchased food and other staple items for Cincinnati’s Shelterhouse. What began over a decade ago delivering gift baskets to the Drop Inn Center in Over the Rhine during the Holiday Season expanded into what is now an annual charitable event.
Shelterhouse is a community of residents, staff, and volunteers working together to provide basic human services for men and women experiencing homelessness, with a primary commitment to shelter. The Shelterhouse operates an Emergency Shelter Program, treating over 70% of all single homeless adults in the Cincinnati region with a total of 210 beds. Their emergency shelter offers basic survival services such as three daily meals, a bed to sleep in, toiletries, and emergency clothing items. They are consistently operating at an over-capacity level and their nightly bed count for the last 12 months averaged 258 people, well over their 210 capacity.
“Last year we were able to provide enough food for the shelter to supply about one and a half months of their food needs; this year we believe we have surpassed that amount by providing about two months of supplies. Ultimately, our goal is to continue to grow local involvement and provide much needed items to the shelter. This is the time of year when we should come together and give back. What better way to give back than to those in our own community who need it the most?” said Laurence Bergman of NAI Bergman
“The donations from the NAI Bergman Group food drive have been vital to the very survival of the Shelterhouse over that past years. Because Shelterhouse continues to operate at an over-capacity level, these contributions come at a crucial time of the year when their population is overflowing due to the extreme cold weather. A true blessing at a time when we need it the most.” Said Gail Harper of Shelterhouse
Laurence Bergman and Billy Gillman are already planning next year’s event hoping to give even more support than years previous. Another unique aspect to the annual food drive is that families are able to come together of all ages and contribute to this great cause. Encouraging families including children to participate in charitable giving is really what the holidays are all about.
