Rebecca L. Palmer Law Group Distributes Donated Supplies to the Homeless | Florida Bar News

In an article published on 6/6, the Rebecca L. Palmer Law Group is highlighted for its essential work in the community, distributing supplies and necessities to those in need in downtown Orlando.

“When my 19-year-old daughter, Jessica, was in elementary school, we supported Mending Hearts, a non-profit organization that collects essential items like soap, socks, toothbrushes, and toothpaste,” said Rebecca. “One of my community outreach efforts saw me join other volunteers to hand out slices of pizza to the homeless in downtown Orlando. This grew into a partnership with Wells Fargo and their customers, donating soap and supplies for us to hand out during our community outreach events.”

With over half a million people homeless in the U.S. and close to 30,000 in Florida, homelessness has hit epic proportions. In 2021, the federal government reportedly provided over $51 billion in funding for selected homelessness and housing programs. In 2021, Governor DeSantis announced $85.8 Million in CARES Act Funding to address housing instability and homelessness in Florida.
