NAPEO Gives Back 2020
Although we won't all be gathering together in Marco Island as planned this year, we can still rally as an industry to support our 2020 charity partner, Our Daily Bread Food Pantry. Even before the pandemic, Our Daily Bread was fulfilling a critical need for many families, serving more than 30,000 individuals annually by gathering and distributing more than 330,000 pounds of food. Its base of operations is in Marco Island, with various mobile pantry outreaches across Collier County, where one in eight adults and one in five children are food insecure.
Marco Island and the surrounding communities have been hit hard by the coronavirus crisis. Our Daily Bread is now serving an average of 10,000 individuals a month, up from just 2500 before the pandemic. By the end of 2020, they are on pace to serve almost 100,000 with demand growing week to week.
Let's use our collective power as an industry to help lift up those in need and make a true impact on the Marco Island community! Check out this awesome video from NAPEO Gives Back Chair Barron Guss.
