“The thankful heart opens our eyes to a multitude of blessings that continually surround us.”
Denali wanted to help give back to our local community by partnering up Seniors First INC with our FIRST EVER Thanksgiving Food Drive. For those who don't know of Seniors First, it is a program that assists the vulnerable elderly in our community with support, and to promote independent living. Seniors First provides critical programs and services such as Meals of wheels, neighborhood lunch programs, and In-Home Care for Seniors.
On Saturday Nov. 15th 2020, Denali passed out 300 bags to local neighborhoods on Markham Woods road and in Wekiva neighborhood areas in Florida. With the help of our sponsors, the Filutowski Eye Institute, Zelmar Kitchen Designs & more, and Clarke’s Hunt Club Optical, they provided additional drop-off locations in Daytona, Lake Mary, Apopka, and Orlando.
Denali Marketing Media wouldn't have been able to make this possible without the help of our volunteers: Zoe Filutowski, Rob Shand, Laura Elise, Whalley Leach, and Aleksander Markovic. Denali is truly thankful to have such a great team to help execute this holiday mission!
We had a total of 36 bags that weighed over 731.75 pounds! GUYS! THAT'S A SIZE A LARGE FEMALE POLAR BEAR! Fun Fact: 731.75 pounds of food is more than enough to feed 30 people every day for five days.
Denali is very appreciative to be able to participate in this food drive, and hopes to make more of a difference in our community moving forward into the upcoming holidays. We hope that everyone has had a wonderful holiday. Please leave a comment about what your favorite Thanksgiving dishes are!
