WHAT'S NEW AT COLLIER HARVEST?
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT – MATCHING GIFTS NOW THRU DECEMBER 31st
We are excited to announce that a generous donor has offered to match all monetary donations we receive between November 1st and December 31st
A gift of $25 becomes $50, $50 becomes $100 and so on!
This opportunity will allow Collier Harvest to feed more of our hungry neighbors by providing our agencies with healthy and nutritious food in the coming year. We hope you'll support Collier Harvest and have your generosity matched dollar for dollar so that we can do twice the good in our community!
Collier Can! is our new initiative that encompasses the spirit of all our programs. Collier County residents have proven we CAN come together and help fill the needs in our community. These 2 words offer so much hope and power! Look for Collier Can! in conjunction with our many local food drives and projects coming up this year. We know that Collier Can! helps feed our hungry neighbors!
Title I Parent Workshops – East Naples Middle School
We are excited to work with East Naples Middle School, during their monthly Title I Parent Workshops. The workshops are designed to inform parents on how to best support students by addressing a different topic each month. 77% of students attending East Naples Middle School are eligible for the school district's free/reduced meal program due to their family's income level. These meetings give Collier Harvest an opportunity to provide food assistance to families when monthly supplies may be running low. We would not be able to assist these families without the help of these program sponsors:
Moe's Southwest Grill
Rick Johnson Tire and Auto
Gulf Breeze Real Estate
Thank you to Osceola Elementary School teachers, students and parents for another successful food drive! The students donated 1,580 lbs. of nonperishable food that will help feed families during the upcoming holidays.If you would like to start a food drive at your business, school or neighborhood, please contact us to find out how.
With each new sponsorship and donation you prove that Collier Can! help feed our hungry neighbors!
Volunteers, please mark your calendars for our Volunteer Appreciation Reception sponsored by Northern Trust which will be held Thursday, February 9th. More information to come!
From our family to yours – Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a new year filled with peace and happiness!
Please come join us in our ongoing effort to wipe out hunger in our community. It only takes an hour or two of your time per week, and the rewards are immeasurable.
