JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The First Coast Apartment Association (FCAA) has kicked off their annual canned food drive to help tackle hunger in Northeast Florida.
“As an organization we believe that what we do every day matters. The apartment industry strives to make a positive impact in the community. The annual food drive reconfirms that commitment,” said Holly Fox, FCAA board member and co-chair for the drive.
Collection boxes are being set up in apartment communities and offices to collect canned food for the Clara White Mission. FCAA members and community residents are encouraged to contribute to this worthy cause.
“We encourage all FCAA associate and community members to make this important endeavor a success by donating and urging residents to help take up the fight against hunger. The canned food drive is a simple but effective way to tackle hunger here at home,” said co-chair Shannon Gregory, regional director at WRH Realty Services.
FCAA volunteers will pick up donations Nov. 18 - 20. Cans will be delivered to the Clara White Mission on Nov. 21.
“The apartment industry canned food drive is a great example of how to step up to recognize and serve a real need in the community,” noted Clara White Mission CEO/President Ju’Coby Pittman. “Hunger is an everyday reality for some and the apartment industry should be proud of this annual project.”
Founded in 1979, the FCAA serves the apartment industry in Duval, Clay, St. Johns, Flagler, Putnam, and Nassau Counties. FCAA’s mission is to promote, inform and serve the apartment industry through education, legislation, and professional networking.
