October is a month that's not only about cooler temperatures and pumpkin spice; it's also a time for coming together and giving back to our communities.
This October, Harveys, located at 5909 University Boulevard W., has selected Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida as their charity of choice.
Throughout the entire month, every purchase of the $2.99 Community Bag at Harveys will result in a $1 donation going straight to supporting the programs at LSS.
The Community Bag Program is all about fostering local support and creating positive change where we live and work. Since its launch in February 2019, this program donated more than $450,000 to over 8,300 local nonprofits.
"Our partnership with the Community Bag Program is an example of the power of local collaboration. With each bag purchased, we're sowing seeds of hope and change in Northeast Florida." -Bill Brim, CEO and President of Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida.
Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida, established over 43 years ago, has been a steadfast pillar of support in the Northeast Florida community. LSS operates five vital program areas: hunger relief, HIV care and case management, money management, refugee services, and career/financial coaching. Over the decades, LSS has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, providing assistance and hope where it's needed most.
