MILWAUKEE, Sept. 15, 2020 — Frank P. Crivello, Chairman and Founder of Phoenix Investors (“Phoenix“), a national private commercial real estate firm headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, announced a contribution totaling $50,000 will be donated to Riverwest Food Pantry.
Phoenix Investors will donate $50,000 to match Riverwest Food Pantry’s recent successful fundraising campaign. “Riverwest Food Pantry has served the Milwaukee community with integrity, grace, efficacy, and compassion for decades,” said Frank P. Crivello, Founder and Chairman, in an official statement. “It is an honor to offer them the support they need to continue in their mission, especially as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are still yet to be fully realized.”
Riverwest Food Pantry has been serving the greater Milwaukee community for more than 40 years, committed not only to providing food for neighbors but also to engaging community members to end hunger, isolation, and poverty. Most recently, the Riverwest Food Pantry has come to realize that the COVID-19 pandemic has only added to the many burdens that community members are already carrying.
To address these added needs of their community, the Riverwest Food Pantry had to double its ability to provide direct cash assistance to families to fill the gaps that remain after the referral to assistance partnerships. Recognizing this, Phoenix Investors has offered to match donations, up to $50,000.
“Our community is so grateful for this generous gift,” said Vincent Noth, Executive Director of the Riverwest Food Pantry. “It will help us in our continued efforts to provide rent, utilities, and other crisis-related assistance to those many families in our community who have been hit hardest by the pandemic.”
