Sharon Riguard, Vice President of FTC, Liliam Lopez, CEO of SFLHCC, and RaShuana Hamilton, Senior Director of Miami Dolphins Community Relations & Youth Program, joined forces with other dignitaries to donate commercial-grade coffee machine, fridge, and steam kettle to the not-for-profit charity organization.

Filling the persistent needs of an ever-growing population

The leaders of the Chapman Partnership Charity talked about the challenges they have faced in bridging the gaps between the growing population and mass food production. They believe this donation can fill that need. The donation was announced during the press conference at the charity organization’s north facility.

This charity organization is determined to empower homeless residents and low-income families of Miami-Dade County through long-term self-sufficiency services and comprehensive programs.

The president of FTC, Dr. James Michael Burkett, talked about their responsibility to serve the local communities around them. They have had a successful three-year partnership with Miami Dolphins, and now with this new association with SFLHCC, they see a bright and better future for Miami-Dade County and other communities.

The Senior Director of the team feels the same way about this partnership, reiterating the fact that their past associations and programs with FTC have paved the way for positive changes in combating food insecurity.


Chapman Partnership Charity is the chosen one

Liliam M. Lopez the executive director of the SFLHCC suggested Chapman charity receive the donation given their wide track record of community development and the great work they continue to do. For her, National Random Acts of Kindness Day is hope during the darkness. It assures people that they’re not alone.

He further thanked the teams involved in this partnership for their generosity and for lifting the community.

FTC promises to continue its National Random Acts of Kindness initiatives all year, including its campus food drive scheduled for spring. These initiatives will be undertaken in conjunction with the Foundation Relief program of the Miami Dolphins to support minority-owned food and restaurant businesses in Miami.
