The Southern States Management Group Foundation's leadership delivered a $30,000 check to Family Renew Community in December 2022, courtesy of funds raised during the foundation's golf tournament in September 2022 at the Conservatory at Hammock Beach in Palm Coast.
“The proceeds from the golf tournament couldn’t come at a better time for Family Renew Community and the population of hardworking yet financially struggling families that we serve through the generosity of our supporters," Rev. Tony Deobil, executive director of Family Renew Community, said in a press release. "Escalating costs for housing and essentials such as food and clothing are pushing more families who live paycheck to paycheck over the brink of homelessness. This infusion of funds will allow us to keep up with our own rising costs as we offer them a safe, stable home and equip them with the tools they need to be self-sufficient."
The press release states that the foundation’s purpose is "to improve the standard of living for those in need in Volusia and Flagler counties with specific emphasis on transitional and permanent housing, physical and mental wellness, social stability, and educational opportunities."
