COMMUNITY SERVICE

Each month our association chooses a charity or organization of some sort to make donations to.  If you have an interest in helping choose an organization or charity, please contact our Community Service Chair, Shanon Matheny.  Here is a list of our upcoming months:

 


NOVEMBER 2019 - FOOD DONATIONS

Treasure Coast Food Bank strives to maintain the highest standard of efficiency while providing food to those in need. With only a 3% overhead, 97% of donated resources go to help set the table for nearly 100,000 individuals a week. We rely on the generosity and support of local businesses, churches, foundations, corporations, government, civic groups and individuals in order to successfully continue serving residents of the Treasure Coast who struggle with hunger. Please print the flyer here and put a box in your office.  Bring all donations to the dinner this month.
