So it’s no surprise that during the holiday season, Bloom’s giving continued. Spearheaded by Mill Valley resident and executive director Sherene Chen, Bloom partnered with sponsors Red Tower Capital, Shawn Martin of Refined Services Inc. and Christine Lindner to deliver new shoes, books and stuffed animals to all 24 students in the pre-kindergarten class at San Rafael’s Laurel Dell School. The items were donated by Kohl’s Cares.
Bloom typically adopts two classrooms per year but was able to help this third class in 2017 due to the funds raised through its first holiday fundraiser. Martin of Refined Services Inc. accompanied Bloom on the delivery to Laurel Dell, getting a chance to experience the warmth and gratitude directly from the students by passing out the shoes and reading them a story.
