Carrie Mehdi Foundation (CMF), a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, announces $3,000 in donations to three non-profit organizations that provide support services to the homeless population in Southern California.
The donations were made to the following organizations:
The Midnight Mission, Los Angeles — $1,000
Union Station Homeless Services, Pasadena — $1,000
Homeless Health Care, Los Angeles – – $1,000
This is the second consecutive year of these donations. CMF began making these donations in 2014 at the direction of Greg Mehdi, a founding member of the Board of Directors of CMF. Sadly, Greg passed away in a car accident in Los Angeles in July 2014 at an early age of thirty. Speaking of the significance of these donations, Greg’s father and CMF Board Member, Zafar Mehdi said, “Greg lived and worked in Los Angeles. He was very passionate about helping the homeless population and had specifically recommended that CMF support these organizations. We are pleased to make these donations in Greg’s memory. In keeping with Greg’s wishes, we will continue to support these organizations for the wonderful work that they do in helping the homeless population”.
To highlight the importance of making these donations, Zafar Mehdi personally delivered the donations to the leaders of the three organizations.
