Cooper's Hawk Winery in Naples, FL Collects Nearly 1,000 LBS. of Food!

After the staff at Cooper's Hawk Winery in Burr Ridge, Illinois held a month-long food drive in August, the team at the Naples, Florida location decided that they wanted to do their part, too!

From September 16-22, the staff held a food drive to help celebrate Hunger Action Month. Employees were encouraged to bring in donations of non-perishable food, such as peanut butter, tuna, pasta, and cereal, to help fight hunger in their community. Nearly 1,000 lbs. of food was collected in just one week, an incredible accomplishment! That's enough to provide 800 meals for their neighbors in need! Representatives from Cooper's Hawk personally delivered all of the donations to the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida.

More than 150,000 people in Southwest Florida face hunger every day, including 1 in 5 children. Thank you to the team at Cooper's Hawk Winery for helping to feed the need! We hope we can work together again next year!

We want to take all the guesswork out of your next food drive. Check out our Featured Campaigns for ideas for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the holiday season!
