Share the Joy & Save – 2017 Holiday Food Drive
Nothing spells the holidays quite like oven-roasted turkey, pumpkin pie, fresh-baked cookies and my personal favorite, herb stuffing. I bet you’re thinking about your favorites right now. For many of us, the holiday season wouldn’t be the same without the traditional foods we grew up with.
But for some in our community who are struggling to make ends meet, serving up a holiday feast may be out of the question. In Charlotte County, an estimated 12.4% of the population lives below the poverty line. And according to a recent report from United Way posted on All Faiths Food Bank, “more than 30% of Sarasota County residents are one crisis away from poverty, and often make desperate choices to make ends meet.”
The good news is that we can help.
We’ve kicked off our annual food drive to help share the joy of the holiday season with the less fortunate in our community. During last year’s drive, we collected over 1,500 lbs. of food to benefit local charities. Thank you to all of you generous folks who donated!
Donate Food and Receive $5 Off Any Plumbing Service
From now until December 31st, we’ll give you a $5 discount on your total invoice for plumbing service when you donate at least two nonperishable food items.
Our air conditioning division, Kobie Complete Heating & Cooling, is also offering $5 off any air conditioning service.
All food items donated will go directly to Englewood Helping Hand and the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition and into the hands of struggling people in Sarasota and Charlotte counties.
Together, we can make a difference. Let’s do our part to help make this holiday season a joyful one for everyone in our community.
