Edison Ford Staffers Donate Food
Edison & Ford Winter Estates employees donated more than 100 pounds of
food to the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida. The food was col-
lected during the annual staff holiday luncheon.
Employees wanted to give back to the community and help people in need, so they
collected food for a group donation.
The food bank helps feed thousands of hungry people in Lee Charlotte, Collier,
Glades and Hendry counties every day and is always in need of donations. For more
information, call 239-334-7419 or visit www.edisonfordwinterestates.org.
