Taste of Hope Sponsors

2017 Taste of Hope GALA Sponsors


Hear why our Gold sponsors support Family Promise:

“Family Promise of Berks County is a nonprofit that reinforces family values to its’ very core. As parents go through the stress of providing the material necessities of daily living, children’s emotional needs can get close to last on the list. Through the help of a large interfaith network of hundreds of volunteers who provide meals and shelter, parents are given an opportunity to refocus their priorities and regain a footing on their life. Along with the rental assistance and teen guidance programming, Family Promise of Berks is an organization close to our hearts.”
The Diebolt Family

“Mail Shark values giving back and is honored to be able to help organizations that are making a difference in our local community. We serve clients across the United States, could have located our facility anywhere in the country, but chose to settle here. With Berks County being our chosen home, it gives us great pleasure to be able to improve lives in the community where our employees live, shop, work and play every day.”
Mail Shark
“Family Promise of Berks County does so much for families and individuals facing housing challenges. By supporting organizations like theirs, we hope to contribute to a stronger community and business environment in the long-term. We believe it is our responsibility to support the communities we serve and express that people do care. We hope this commitment from customer bank will encourage people and play a positive role in the continued growth and success of Berks County.”
Customers Bank
“Under the leadership of Craig Poole, President, COO of Reading Hospitality Management Company, the DoubleTree by Hilton Reading has created a genuine presence in the community with an impact that has become essential to the great people of this city. Craig Poole has made a career of going into broken hotels and marginalized cities and creating a team around him to improve the lives, working conditions and environments surrounding them. We support efforts that contribute to our “mission” of improving the lives of others and the communities they live in.”
