Miami food bank Curley’s House of Style in need of donations – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports
MIAMI (WSVN) – A South Florida organization serving families in need has sought help from the community for the vacation.
The holiday season is a time to give back to the community, and Curley’s House of Style needs help from South Florida to help the underserved.
“This is a great organization. I’m very proud of the work we do in the community, ”said Curley’s House founder Lavern Scott.
Curley’s House’s mission is to improve, empower, and promote the quality of life of low to middle income individuals and families by providing the food and supplies necessary to survive.
“We feed over 5,000 people a month and help everyone in need without running them through a lot of red tape,” said Scott. “We’re here to help, we love to help.”
However, at this time of year they ask for help themselves. “We want to help as many people as possible, so we are in need,” said Scott.
“We appeal to everyone to help us and keep our doors open,” said Curley’s assistant director Laverne Holliday.
The organization was founded in 2001 and named after Cuzzie “Curley” King, a well-known Liberty City resident who devoted her life to helping the community.
Curley’s is a grassroots nonprofit based in Miami that aims to help all that they can.
“It’s a ministry, it’s a mission, it’s about giving, it’s about reaching the church, showing support and letting them know that we are here Monday through Friday whenever they need help,” said Scott.
The community is grateful for everything the organization does for them.
“I think it’s a wonderful thing. It’s every week, ”said one recipient. “It’s just very good for the community, especially when you don’t have a lot. All the people are just wonderful. I love them all. “
Curley’s House solicits donations of dry groceries, fruits and vegetables, and non-perishable items, and toys for children of all ages.
“We need toys for our Christmas parties and freebies that we have,” said Scott. “We need over 1,000 toys to help the children here.”
Donations are always welcome. They help keep the doors open and help provide many things that we take for granted.
“We also help them with things they need, such as an immigration lawyer,” said Holliday. We help you with all your needs. “
You do all of this with a smile on your face too. “I just enjoy what we do,” said Holliday.
