Thank you for helping us to stamp out hunger for 25 years











Celebrating 25 Years




WHAT'S NEW AT COLLIER HARVEST?

NALC Stamp Out Hunger 2017
May 13th marked the 25th anniversary of the National Association of Letter Carrier's Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive and as always, our community gave with their hearts. Food donations received this year are estimated to be over 260,000 pounds and still counting! Because of your donations, we'll be able to supplement the agencies we serve with much needed food resources through the long summer months. THANK YOU!

It was a full day for our Board members, staff and over 150 volunteers stationed at our warehouse and postal branches loading and unload, sorting and boxing donated food. We are so grateful to these dedicated and hardworking individuals. Some are old friends who've been volunteering for countless years and many new friends were made and welcomed into the family we know as Collier Harvest.

We of course would not have a food drive without the hard work and commitment of Collier County's postal workers. For 25 years they have given their time and energy to collect and carry the food donations. We are so proud to partner with these dedicated individuals in the fight against hunger!

A special thank you goes to our favorite band, Captain Joe & the Bottomfeeders; they donate their time and talent each year to entertain us and keep us motivated during the long hours of the drive.

Special Thanks
We'd like to thank John R. Wood Properties for sponsoring the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive this year. Our new bags, which were delivered to 120,000 residents in Collier County, looked fabulous!

Give Where You Live Collier 2017!

We had another successful year with the Give Where You Live Collier event sponsored by the Community Foundation of Collier County and the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation.

With donations from kind individuals and a matching grant from an anonymous donor we raised $22,418. We are so grateful for your generous support which will allow us to continue to fulfill our mission of feeding our hungry neighbors. Overall the Give Where You Live Collier event raised over 4 million dollars for 41 nonprofit agencies that serve education and basic needs. It's amazing what we can do when we come together as a community! Congratulations to the Community Foundation of Collier County for an extremely successful event!

IT'S OUR ANNIVERSARY!
This year we celebrate 25 years serving our community and feeding our hungry neighbors. We've delivered over 17.4 million pounds of food to over 60 agencies through the years, and we could not be prouder of this huge milestone! Thank you to our daily volunteers who pick up surplus food 7 days a week and so many who have volunteered their time during food drives. Thank you to those who have donated food year after year for Stamp Out Hunger and to our donors whose monetary gifts allow us to purchase healthy and nutritious food to fill empty pantries. We hope you will continue to join us in our mission to feed those in need in Collier County!

Food Fast
The first year of our Food Fast program at East Naples Middle School was a great success where we provided groceries once a month to 50 families in need. In total, Collier Harvest provided 9,000 meals over a 9-month period to help families during the critical time of the month when food supplies are running low.

Thank you to the following local businesses who sponsored the program this year:

Moe's Southwest Grill Rick Johnson Tire and Auto  
Fish Crazy IRMS, Inc.
Castle & Shores Real Estate Publix Supermarkets

Our goal is expand this program to an additional Title 1 school next year! If you or your business is interested in sponsoring this program, please contact us to find out how!
