Beth-El Center homeless shelter and soup kitchen in Milford received a $33, 844 donation from the proceeds of the 10th Annual Milford Trick or Trot 5K Run/Walk fundraiser held on October 30th. On December 16, 2021, event organizers and sponsors Harlow, Adams & Friedman, P.C. and Sikorsky Credit Union presented the donation to the Center’s Executive Director Jenn Paradis.
“We are so thankful to everyone who ran and walked in the Trick or Trot. And we’re very grateful for our long-term partnership with Harlow, Adams and Friedman and Sikorsky Credit Union,” according to Paradis. “Over the past 10 years, the support of the Trick or Trot has helped us serve over 300,000 meals, shelter over 1000 adults and 300 children and through economic recessions and global pandemics, add three new programs including our outreach and engagement, permanent supportive housing, and diversion services.”
This donation will support the operation of the Beth-El Center’s emergency homeless shelter, food programs and support services for families, men, women and veterans in the Milford area who are experiencing homelessness. Additionally, it will support the Center's work in the community to prevent hunger and homelessness.
