Adventist Health partners with World Vision to help those in need in the Central Valley.
Adventist Health, the non-profit integrated health system serving more than 75 communities on the West Coast and in Hawaii, is proud to be the second organization to partner with the global humanitarian organization, World Vision, to support its mission of helping children and families from local communities fight poverty in California’s Central Valley.
The nonprofit healthcare system is set to participate in the organization’s latest storehouse, where it will distribute goods on behalf of World Vision in underserved areas throughout the Central Valley.
The Inspire Hope Project connects retail and wholesale businesses to deliver surplus items to nonprofits in communities who can distribute them directly to families in need. The organization’s mission focuses on the most vulnerable children and their families.
World Vision chose Adventist Health for the project due to the health system’s ability to link with various agencies serving those communities and its advocacy for bringing attention to the region.
The result of the partnership is retailers will deliver returned and surplus items to the Adventist Health warehouse.
The health system then will work to redistribute them to dozens of organizations that provide services to those in need, such as homeless shelters, halfway houses, battered women shelters, drug rehab centers, farm labor camps, schools and churches.
California’s Central Valley is the newest of only a handful of places in the U.S. that World Vision supports with this type of project.
