Our co-founding partner Charles Kiester serves meals prepared by All Saints Church to women and children at the Coalition for the Homeless in downtown Orlando.
As an active member of his church, Charles also helps with the Love Wins program which purchases non perishable food from Second Harvest that is boxed up then delivered to needy families in the community.
Our co-founding partner, Tom Fritchek, is active in fund raising as President of the Eastridge High School Band, and donated a free web site created by Southern Cross Media.
He recently was proactive in alerting Lake County, Florida officials to animal abuse which resulted in 5 horses being rescued and saved from starvation.
On November 16, 2020, Southern Cross Media staff and co-owner Tom Fritchek delivered gifts for the nursing home residents at the Clermont Health and Rehabilitation Center in Clermont, Florida. These items will be distributed at an annual holiday party for the institutionalized residents, most of whom have been unable to have visitors for most of this year due to COVID-19 restrictions. We are glad to be part of the giving community and hope this will bring some joy to the residents as they celebrate the holiday.
