On May 1, 2018, Life Care Center of New Port Richey, Florida, partnered with the Sertoma Speech and Hearing Foundation of Florida to put on a Grab and Go breakfast fundraiser.
The morning of the fundraiser, Life Care associates came together at the pickup location to help serve breakfast bags to guests coming through. Not only did the associates help serve, but they also prepared and donated more than 200 bags for those participating in the fundraiser. The breakfast bags included coffee, juice, an egg sandwich, a muffin, yogurt and fruit. The event was part of the annual Give Day Tampa Bay, a 24-hour event that increases awareness of non-profits in the communities surrounding Tampa Bay.
With a suggested donation of $5 and more than 200 breakfast bags ordered, the fundraiser raised $1,000. The Sertoma Foundation strives to provide quality services, such as rehabilitation, education, etc., to those who are hearing impaired. The mission of Sertoma is “to enhance individual potential and quality of life through better hearing.”
“The event was a huge success,” said Ashlea Evans, executive director of Life Care Center of New Port Richey. “It was a great way to bring in people from the community, knowing they were giving to a great cause.”
