Naples, FL, March 2019 – Discovery Village At Naples, Assisted Living and Memory Care senior living community, will be collecting canned and dry goods throughout next month with all items to benefit Naples Senior Center Food Pantry. Naples Senior Center Food Pantry is a resource for seniors and their families in the Greater Naples area to address food insecurity and is available to all community members. Collection boxes will be located at the Discovery Senior Living corporate office, Dr. Demartino’s office, Dr. Wesley Drew Chapman’s office, Dr. Carlos Portu’s Family Practice, ManorCare Nursing & Rehabilitation Center at Naples and ManorCare Health Services at Lely Palms Rehab Skilled Nursing.
“At Discovery Village At Naples we are always searching for ways to give back to our community,” says Executive Director, Carla Davis. “We think it is wonderful what the Naples Senior Center Food Pantry does for those who need food assistance, and we are so excited to be a part of their food drive efforts this Spring!”
A unique aspect of the Naples Senior Center Food Pantry is that it is designed for individuals to “shop” for food items they want rather than receiving a pre-packed bag or lunch. The Naples Senior Center understands that it is difficult and uncomfortable for many people to ask for assistance with food, which is why their appointment-style shopping is meant to preserve the client’s confidentiality.
The following items are always needed: (cannot be expired/nonperishable)
- Canned Tuna, Canned Salmon, Canned Chicken
- Ketchup, Mustard, Mayonnaise, Relish
- Canned Vegetables, Canned Fruit
- Pasta & Rice
- Peanut Butter and Jelly
- Canned Chili
