Here at Eco Simplista, our sister company Alternative Constructors, we pride ourselves on being a local and family run company. We are grateful to the new opportunities Fort Lauderdale has provided for our eco-friendly company; we are continuing to expand and grow. But each day, as we drive into work, we are exposed to the harsh truth that not everyone in our bustling city is fortunate enough to have a hot meal on their table, let alone a reliable shelter.
So this year, Eco Simplista, is hosting its first annual food and clothing drive that will benefit an organization dear to Eco Simplista: The Jubilee Center of Broward County.
The Jubilee Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that has been assisting those in need in South Florida for over 25 years. The Jubilee Center is a soup kitchen, food pantry and social services agency.
Every month The Jubilee Center provides over 3,000 life-sustaining meals. In addition to a meal, they provide the homeless with hygiene kits, clothing and walk-around bags of non-perishable food that does not require cooking. The Jubilee Center food pantry likewise provides boxes of food to families in need.
The Jubilee Center also assists individuals with getting Medicaid, food stamps, birth certificates, state IDâ€™s and cell phones, as well as legal aid through Broward Legal Aid Society and counseling through Families in Distress.
With your help and participation, Eco Simplista hopes to contribute at least 30 pounds of food to The Jubilee Center by the end of the year. Here are some of the most needed items (anything and everything will help!):
- Peanut Butter
- Canned Fruits/Veggies
- Canned Tuna/Sausages/Meats
- Canned Meals/Soups
- Cereals (hot or cold)
- Shorts and Pants
- Shampoo and Conditioner
