Hunger and Homelessness Have No Off-season
All Day Long – Friday, July 14th at Naples Nissan
Join us at Naples Nissan on July 14th for a fundraiser and food drive as we unite to fight hunger, homelessness, and poverty in Southwest Florida!
Naples Nissan, St. Matthew’s House, and eighteen of your favorite local radio stations, will be on-site to collect food and receive donations during the time of year when the vulnerable in our community need the most help – the summer months.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for us to come together to meet the needs of the less fortunate in the community,” said Vann Ellison, President and CEO of St. Matthew’s House. “So many people are struggling, even in an economy like this with a low unemployment rate. Especially out of season, our food supplies and donations are low.”
Employees of Naples Nissan and St. Matthew’s House, along with volunteers, will be on-hand to collect canned/non-perishable food items and cash donations (credit cards also accepted) for shelter renovations. All proceeds go to support the life-changing work of St. Matthew’s House.
“We are all just so passionate about what St. Matthew’s House does, and we are committed to help,” writes Aaron Walker, Naples Nissan’s General Manager. Aaron and his wife initiated the partnership when shopping at a St. Matthew’s House thrift store a couple of years ago. Mr. Walker was impressed with the organization’s professionalism and ability to employ people struggling with deep-rooted problems while becoming productive members of society.
In addition to the food drive and fundraiser on Friday, Naples Nissan will donate $500 for each vehicle sold this week, up to $50,000, to St. Matthew’s House. The offer ends on Sunday, July 16th.
Media sponsors for the event include:
