APC thanks donor

Editor: 
Alameda Point Collaborative (APC) is excited to recognize the receipt of a major gift from the Jamestown Charitable Foundation. During APC’s annual Farm-to-Table Fundraiser, Jamestown generously donated $10,000 and became the organization’s first “Spirit of Hope” sponsor. 

A rainy May day did not stop more than 140 guests from attending the fine, catered luncheon presented by A Fork Full of Earth. Attendees enjoyed live music from the East Bay Brass Band, a silent auction and a speech from APC resident Allen Beene. Beene highlighted the impact of APC’s work and his personal story of resilience.

Jamestown President Michael Phillips expressed his company’s intent to support APC in providing permanent supportive housing and services to their residents. He said APC is “providing vital resources and support services to help break the cycle of homelessness in Alameda County” and that Jamestown is “proud to support APC and thankful for the opportunity to create a lasting relationship with this community.”

APC is the largest provider of supportive housing in Alameda County for individuals and families experiencing chronic homeless and permanent disabilities. APC uses Alameda’s decommissioned naval base to provide permanent housing and support services to 500 residents. Jamestown’s donation will support resident housing, APC’s employment, education, job training and youth services.

This year, APC is celebrating 20 years of service to Alameda County. Large contributions such as this one help us continue to provide housing and services that create a community where formerly homeless families feel empowered to break the cycles and symptoms of homelessness.
