As most of you know Dennis Gagnon Jr, Brian Brennan and I formed the Affordable Home Insurance Charities Foundation in 2012. The foundations goal has always been to support our local community in any way possible. In the past we’ve partnered with The Eagle Fund, Sandcastle Kids, Pawsitive Love Foundation, and The Emerald Coast Breast Cancer Foundation to name a few.
Sadly, due to COVID-19 we’ve canceled this year’s tournament, yet every defeat presents us with new opportunities. With the support of many of our Insurance Carriers/Sponsors, Get The Coast owned by Jared Williams, and JP Carducci Inc. Construction Services owned by Jason Carducci, The Affordable Home Insurance Charities Foundation is launching a local relief effort.
MOST of our local community has and will suffer from all of this, sadly, some more than others. Most of our businesses will also feel major impact as well but not to the likes of those locally owned restaurants and service members that drive this town.
Our goal is to support these locally owned restaurants and their employees by purchasing meals for our local medical personnel, first responders, and teachers in Okaloosa and Walton County. Today we are providing lunch to the entire staff at Sacred Heart Hospital with the help of our locally owned Tropical Smoothie. We will also be providing a meal to the staff of both Fort Walton Beach Medical Center and Twin Cities Hospital on Monday of next week thanks to Fubar.
In addition to that, we have plans to feed medical personnel, first responders, and teachers at locally owned restaurants throughout our community in the near future. These initial relief efforts are being funded by the Affordable Home Insurance Charities Foundation but we’d like to keep this going.
I realize that this is a difficult time for us all. All I ask of each is you, is that you please share this with anyone whom you think may be able or willing to help. We’re not asking for a fixed donation. Any amount can help these locally owned restaurants survive while feeding those we’re needing most right now! Get The Coast will be highlighting these local restaurants and business sponsors/individuals through various different platforms.
Many of us have grown up here, or planted our roots here because we truly love what this town has to offer. While I’ll admit it’s been great to get home in 8 minutes! We can’t survive without the local businesses that fuel tourism. If you have any interest in our relief effort and would like more information on how your business can partner with us by making a tax deductible donations to feed our first responders, please reach out to me directly.
