Auto Repair Shop Helping to End Hunger for Southwest Florida

Auto Repair Shop Helping to End Hunger for Southwest Florida

Hurricane Ian came ripping through Southwest Florida on September 27th, 2022. It caused so much devastation to our side of the coast, that the need for food, and basic necessities was very much felt throughout the communities. A local newspaper article recently wrote that the local Food Banks are in much need for the holidays coming up. The participating agencies are Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Senior Friendship Center, and the South County Food Pantry. We have partnered with our friends and neighbors at the South County Food Pantry to be a drop off location for canned goods and non perishable items. 

We are asking all of our friends, neighbors, clients and family to bring in any donations they might be able to give and in return we are going to enter those into a drawing for a FREE Turkey on November 18th. (We want to make sure you have more than enough notice before Thanksgiving to get a Turkey.) You do NOTneed to have an appointment at our shop to donate, we welcome anyone to participate. just pull right up to the service drive and we can help navigate where to drop them off! There is NO limit to how many donations you can bring. 

We will post on here several examples of wanted and needed items, but upon reaching out, it seems that the most needed items are: crackers, pasta sauce, pasta, canned meats, instant potatoes, and hygiene items. 

Please ensure that your donation is not expired - Check those dates! Be kind with your donations, donate what you would eat yourself. We would love to generate enough donations that even during Christmas the communities of Southwest, FL have all they need and most of all, full bellies. 

We SO appreciate your generosity and heart at this time of need for our state.
