PHILADELPHIA, PA, November 19, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Charity comes in all shapes and sizes and has remained an important aspect of culture that allows individuals to realize the benefit of giving back to a community. Although many Americans were focused on the upcoming presidential election on Saturday, October 27, others were concentrating on helping people as part of National Make a Difference Day. As a company that supports charitable actions and provides donations and support to non-profit organizations, Gulf Coast Readers Inc. is extremely pleased with the turnout for this day focused on charity. A recent article from Fox News highlights the efforts of the Fort Myers region of Florida, where Gulf Coast Readers Inc. is based.
According to the article, many residents showed up to support the efforts of one local non-profit known as the Harry Chapin Food Bank. In the article, Al Brislaine, president and CEO of the Harry Chapin Food Bank, commented on the immense turnout of volunteers--totaling in the thousands--on National Make a Difference Day. Brislaine states, "Groups got together all around the country and said let's all set aside where we come in as families, as groups. It's great the outpouring of support we're getting."
Having supported the Harry Chapin Food Bank for years, the professionals at Gulf Coast Readers Inc. could not be more pleased with the selfless actions displayed by local residents. As stated in the article, volunteers from families to Florida Gulf Coast University students gathered to help organize approximately, "7,000 pounds of squash, zucchini and cucumbers."
Gulf Coast Readers Inc. is glad to see that the charity it has supported received such great attention from the community and hopes that the Harry Chapin Food Bank will continue to receive help from residents. Although employees at Gulf Coast Readers Inc. have donated canned goods and food products to the organization as a tradition, the company is impressed by the actual service provided by the volunteers highlighted in the article. In a recent press statement, Gulf Coast Readers Inc. concludes, "It is one thing to be able to donate money or canned goods to a charity, but it is even more rewarding to be able to get out and donate time and help out the less fortunate." Although National Make a Difference Day occurred once this year, Gulf Coast Readers Inc. encourages citizens everywhere to take any chance they can get to give back to their respective communities.
