About Belmond’s Wish
Belmond, Managing Partner Steven Schwartz’s son, and his family went to Los Angeles a couple of years ago. There, Belmond saw people living in tents and begging for food, which he had never seen before. When Belmond and his family returned to Massachusetts, he was still troubled by what he had seen and decided he was going to do everything he could to help others in similar situations within his community.
After a number of ideas were thrown about, Belmond decided that he wanted to do food donations for those in need. His birthday was in November, and in lieu of birthday gifts, he asked only for food donations. He reached out to friends, classmates, family, and even local businesses for help. Companies like WalMart, Target, and various grocery stores helped out with donations. Just before Thanksgiving of 2021, he was able to donate months worth of food to local food pantries.
Belmond knew he wanted to keep the tradition alive for years to come, and as a result, created “Belmond’s Wish”, a nonprofit organization.
The non-profit held their first charity event on October 16, 2022 at Camp Maplewood in Easton, featuring activities for kids of all ages including food trucks, boating, sports, pedal karts, face painting, balloon animals, a petting zoo, and more. The event was a huge success and as a result, Belmond and his team were able to deliver over 4,000 lbs of food to local food pantries.
The movement has sparked interest among multiple news outlets, securing coverage on ABC World News Tonight from New York, Boston.com, and more. Belmond is set to receive further recognition for his work at a ceremony in Boston under the aegis of the Association of Funding Professionals.
The plan is to do this every year and spread the word that little children can make a difference in this world just like Belmond. To support Belmond’s Wish, please donate here.
