FRUITFUL BLESSINGS INC.
Fruitful Blessings is a 501(c)(3) organization formed to supply the homeless and less fortunate with food. We have a mini pantry at The Homeless Center on Tidewater where we supply non perishable items every week. Recently, we partnered with Seatack Elementary and gave Thanksgiving Dinners to families at the school. Upon receiving the $5,000, we would continue to feed the homeless and partner with other non-profit organizations who help relieve hunger in the Hampton roads area.
