After hearing about how families, veterans, and individuals struggle to get a good night’s sleep, Kunish searched for a local shelter in the Tampa Bay area with a need for these Relief Beds. He found St. Vincent de Paul CARES (SVdP), located just outside of downtown St. Petersburg, and learned that they needed to replace their old mattresses.
Smartwerks agreed to donate 70 Relief Bed mattresses to help the CARE Center better serve SVdP’s clients. We have also pledged to replace mattresses in the future.
In September of 2020, Smartwerks teamed up with Century Business Solutions, a payment processing company located in Irvine, Calif., to support SVdP CARES by offering SmartConnect’s SMS marketing software at no cost. This provides an additional medium to gain donations from those who may feel mailings and social media are not as convenient of a platform.
In March 2021, we became SVdP’s newest National Partner.
