Kattel Foundation Gives Back To Community

Foundation supporters serve lunch to the homeless.

The Wellington-based Abi Kattel Memorial Foundation served 200 lunches at St. Ann Place, a homeless center in Riviera Beach, on Dec. 19. It was the 13th year that the foundation has served food to homeless people in need. Many volunteers and sponsors supported the event.

The Abi Kattel Memorial Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization. The foundation annually awards two academic scholarships to college-bound students and supports children to send them to summer camp at the YMCA in Boynton Beach. In addition, it organizes two blood drives each year, one in West Palm Beach and one in Miami.

The foundation operates on funds from donations. Annually it conducts a 5K run/walk for education. The next run/walk will be held at Okeeheelee Park on Jan. 19. For details, visit www.abikattelfoundation.org.
