Pak Mail Beachside Aiding the Homeless Family Center One Estate Job at a Time.

January 14th, 2014 by

“This is going to be so great for the kids,” squealed Mary Ellen McGuire, Executive Director of the Homeless Family Center, as she helped pull bags of new clothes and toys down from the back of Pak Mail Beachside’s truck.

Since October of 2013, Pak Mail Beachside has been answering the requests of Vero’s only shelter designed for families by providing furniture, clothes, and toiletries to the organization.  “In our business people are constantly downsizing and shipping items from one destination to the next.  When items are no longer wanted Pak Mail is asked to donate them and handle the distribution.  For a long time, I have been a supporter of the HFC but never really got involved; that’s when the idea hit me” commented Pak Mail Beachside General Manager, Susan Lorenz.  By utilizing the storage facility at White Glove Moving & Storage, Lorenz has been able to house items needed for families that graduate from the HFC program; which lasts anywhere from 8 months to 2 years, and give them useful household items to make the transition easier.  These items range from beds to dressers, silverware to towels, and a variety of other goods used daily in a home that customers of Pak Mail no longer need and deem donation worthy.

The Homeless Family Center of Vero Beach houses 19 families for an average of 72 people at any given time.  Current statistics indicate that there are nearly 800 homeless individuals in Indian River County and almost 300 of them are children.  In fact the need is so prevalent that the waiting list has upwards of 66 families all of whom have passed the phone and physical interviews which specify that all incoming residents must be drug and alcohol free.   Overall, the organization has a tremendous success rate with 86% of the families graduating from the program.

“The Pak Mail Beachside customers are so generous and embrace the idea of helping these individual families knowing the direct impact it makes.  We are even making it a mission within our family to help when we can.” Lorenz points out by showing her mother’s recent Christmas party invitation requesting all guests bring an item off the wish list of the children at the HFC.  From staff to family and all the wonderful customers in between, Pak Mail Beachside is making a big difference to one small family at a time as the HFC’s newest business partner helping individual families go from homeless to homeowner.
