Each year we invite members of the community to spend a night at our annual…
We meet Greenbox Capital
Greenbox Capital provides small businesses with access to working capital. They want to assist these small businesses with the financial help they need to thrive in today’s economy!
We first met Greenbox Capital when their admin department manager, Allahia McAdams, volunteered to be a mentor at our Mother’s Day Tea Party. She was so generous and compassionate that the guest she mentored was able to have a transformative experience! Allahia told us why she was so interested in helping the homeless in a letter.
She said, “When I was in 5th grade, my mother took in a woman she met at a bus stop. She lived with us for a few weeks and there wasn’t anything that I could see that was different about her from any of the other women in my life. The woman had fallen on hard times in a new state with no support. Showering Love is close to my heart because they provide support and essential services to those who need it. I am proud to be a part of it.”
Greenbox Capital partners in Miami
“Each month, Greenbox Capital participates in a “pay it forward” initiative demonstrating their core value of Service. In the month of September, Greenbox Capital’s staff collected and donated items for members of the Miami community experiencing homeless to join Showering Love in Overtown in support of the local community.
The Greenbox team left the event transformed with many feeling: “grateful”, “blessed” and “honored” to have been a part of a very impactful experience in giving back to the community. They got to know people they may have never met before and were moved by the understanding that we’re all in this together. “Service is the rent we pay for our room here on Earth.” Thank you to Showering Love for giving Greenbox Capital the opportunity to pay our dues!”
We write in praise of the Greenbox Team

To Better Business Bureau:
We are writing to share our professional experience of working with Greenbox Capital. We recommend they receive the “Torch Award” for ethics. Showering Love found a reliable and supportive partner in Greenbox Capital that is aligned with our values and vision.
When Greenbox Capital came out to support us on September 21, 2019, a strong team atmosphere was created. This was due to the many kind interactions between the volunteers and guests. Our guests experiencing homelessness left the event feeling more empowered and remembering that they mattered. Thanks to Greenbox Capital’s participation.
Showering Love was inspired to see Greenbox Capital encouraging their family members and children to attend this event as well. It goes hand in hand with Showering Love’s mission to break the stigma of homelessness. Together with Greenbox Capital, we were able to create an impactful event to foster community. And also to establish new perspectives and restore dignity, hope and health. It is because of partnerships like the one we have with the Greenbox Team that Showering Love can continue to provide a positive influence in our society.
