The 7th Annual Holiday Food Drive was a Terrific Success!
With great joy, we are thrilled to announce the 7th annual holiday food drive was a tremendous success! Firstly, many thanks goes to the seventy-five businesses and groups throughout the Treasure Coast that stepped up to be a box host. Making it easy for businesses to participate every year, White Glove Moving & Storage delivers the boxes to each location empty. Thereafter, the boxes are collected full a week later. Subsequently, some locations contribute just a few items whereas others exceed the one box tenfold. For example, Elite Electric & Air chose to conduct an internal competition among their staff resulting in 1,000 lbs. of food!
Additionally, as a token of appreciation, a complimentary on-air talk radio interview goes to the organization yielding the most items based on their region. Ambitiously, the goal was to raise 2,500 lbs. of food. Presently, we are ecstatic to share the results exceeded our goal yielding 3,460 lbs. during the food drive! In the rain, the delivery was made on December 2oth, in time for distribution to families in need during the holidays and long school break. As you may know, success like this requires the help of many. Therefore, we will be highlighting each location based on their county within the Treasure Coast.
