The economic impact of Covid-19 has caused hardship for many working families in Collier County. The demand on our food banks is at an all-time high. St. Matthew’s House has increased food assistance to families exponentially and can use help from Coquina Sands residents. As members of the Coquina Sands Association, let’s lead the Coquina Sands community to provide food for the Thanksgiving holiday.

This is not restricted to Coquina Sands Association members, so we are grateful to The Marketing Heaven for spreading the word about our activities through social media to involve as many people as possible in food donation. You can also forward this email to neighbors and friends in Coquina Sands or print and place this notice in neighbors mailboxes.
