WHAT'S NEW AT COLLIER HARVEST?
Collier Can! is our new initiative that encompasses the spirit of all our programs. Collier County residents have proven we CAN come together and help fill the needs in our community. These 2 words offer so much hope and power! Look for Collier Can! in conjunction with our many local food drives and projects coming up this year. We know that Collier Can! helps feed our hungry neighbors!
NALC Stamp Out Hunger 2016 and Summer Distributions
May 14th marked the 24th anniversary of the National Association of Letter Carrier’s Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive and as always, our community gave with their hearts. The demand for food this summer was so high that we’ve already distributed all 257,000 pounds to the agencies we serve. Unfortunately, this is 2 months earlier than anticipated. If you would like to start a food drive at your business, school or neighborhood to help fill this gap, please contact us to find out how.

Thank you Donation Yoga of Naples for choosing Collier Harvest to support as their local non-profit organization for the month of August. Donation Yoga of Naples was created by Lauren Fox, who donates half of all class proceeds to local charities. If you’re interested in yoga and giving back to your community, please visit their site.
Thank you to Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church for for allowing us to be a part of their Feed 5000 Program. Every other month Vanderbilt Presbyterian collects food and monetary donations to help feed the hungry in our community. We are excited to be their partner for this program, working together for a common cause.
Thank you to the following sponsors for helping us feed needy families at East Naples Middle School during the upcoming academic year. The generosity of these community-minded organizations will allow us to provide nutritious meals to children and their families who might otherwise go without.

With each new sponsorship and donation you prove that Collier Can! help feed our hungry neighbors!
Moe’s Southwest Grill 9th Annual Corporate Run is Thursday, October 13th. All participants are encouraged to bring canned food donations to benefit Collier Harvest. Monetary proceeds to benefit The Shelter for Abused Women and Children. Create a team of co-workers, friends or run on your own. It’s a healthy and fun way to give back to your community!
In addition to food donations, Collier Harvest accepts monetary donations. Although we keep our administrative costs low and our volunteers use their own personal vehicles and fuel to deliver the donated food, we still require some monetary support to fulfill our mission. Please contact us if you are interesting in making a donation.
Please come join us in our ongoing effort to wipe out hunger in our community. It only takes an hour or two of your time per week, and the rewards are immeasurable.
Our volunteers use this sheet to keep track of their deliveries, including the weight of goods delivered.
