Weekend Food Program partnered with area businesses and volunteers to produce over 500 hygiene kids for Navarre & Gulf Breeze students. This is the first of two kits that will be delivered during the 2016-17 school year. The program was paid for with a grant from the Rotary Club of Navarre and generous donations from Walmart, Ottley Smiles Dental Center & Parkway Dental Cosmetic & Comprehensive Dentistry.
The hygiene kits are part of the mission of Weekend Food Program to provide support that will improve the lives of area children. These will distributed to all children in Navarre and Gulf Breeze schools that participate in the Weekend Food Program in a couple weeks and then again in the Spring.
Also thank you to the team from Hotel Equities (Hampton Inn Navarre & Spring Hill Suites Navarre & Pensacola Beach) who donated their time during their regional meeting to bag up the kits.
Mike Loera, a Manager with Hotel Equities stated, “Being able to partner with the Weekend Food Program and donate our manpower to help pack the hygiene kits was a truly awesome experience. Our volunteers of nearly 40 people helped pack more than 500 kits in just about an hour. This type of community outreach and volunteerism aligns perfectly with our culture here at Hotel Equities where we believe in making a distinct difference in peoples lives”.
