The Tesori Family Foundation is committed to giving back to those in need year-round, but we find a special gift in giving to those in need over the holidays. This Holiday Season, the Foundation is making a donation to cover gifts for 75-100 kids plus their families from our partnership with the Emergency Services & Homeless Coalition of St. Johns County (ESHC) and St. Johns County Schools.

“ESHC is not a handout. It’s a hand up.
We help homeless families who want to help themselves.”

ESHC offers transitional housing for families struggling with homelessness wanting to help themselves. Participant parent(s) must seek job training, employment, continuing education, assessment counseling and permanent housing. Residents stay anywhere from 3-24 months while they work to get back on their feet. We are partnering with St. Augustine Christmas Angel to provide these fantastic families with gifts under the tree.

2021 Event Details will be announced in November.
