MasterCorp is excited to help our neighbors in need! This year we are extending our charity and hospitality to the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida’s 30th annual Hearts of Gold Gala!
We are proud to be a Gold Medallion Sponsor for this esteemed event. The Gala, presented by Homemaker Juice is a fundraiser benefiting the up to 500 men, women, and children who call the coalition their temporary home, due to housing issues, a cause very near to our hearts. We have always been an organization committed to supporting our Associates, as they have been the backbone of our operation since its inception more than 40 years ago. MasterCorp’s People Proud culture is a commitment to our people and that includes our Associates and our communities.
We have always been a proponent for community causes. We focus on the local level because we know that’s where the most impact is needed. We are community partners with the locations we serve, sponsoring non-profits, local sports teams, and partnering with employment agencies to help those looking for work. We also have a number of internal programs to help our Associates. We provide benefits, on top of transportation, and in some markets housing. We’ve even developed our own community fund, the People Proud Fund, in 2018 to help our employees in need, with funds being matched dollar for dollar by the Grindstaff Family. This fund was created with the goal of helping any and all Associates in need, no matter the cause of that need. This includes assisting Associates with housing, medical expenses, and family tragedies to name a few. This year especially, the fund has been instrumental in assisting some of our housekeepers find housing after their homes were destroyed by hurricanes Ian and Nicole. We are an organization that has always put our people first, and we are excited to extend our patronage to The Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.
The organization, like MasterCorp, has a long history of paying its charity forward to help the people in its community. The Coalition was established in 1987 as a low-barrier residential shelter with a focus on housing, emergency services, and diversion. Through community donations and aid, the Coalition helps families and individuals return to stable, permanent homes as quickly as possible. Each day, they serve hundreds of, women, and children through their programs, including more than 100 unsheltered individuals through our community initiatives. Last year alone, through Coalition programs over 1,900 people moved from homelessness into permanent housing.
The Heart of Gold Gala takes place on Saturday, February 18, 2023 at 6:45 PM, and will be held in the Orlando Magic’s private airline hangar. Along with an unforgettable backdrop to the event, the evening will also feature food, drinks, a silent charity auction, and a performance by NSYNC’s Joey Fatone. Hearts of Gold is a fundraising event unlike any other and the best part is the tremendous impact it has on the surrounding community.
MasterCorp looks forward to attending and extending its impact outward to support the community and its people!
