Helping Neighbors: Giving Back All Year Long -- Bailey’s Partnerships Help F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP
Throughout the year, Bailey’s General Store is a neighbor helping neighbor through various support campaigns for FISH.
"Bailey’s believes strongly in giving back to our community," says Richard Johnson of Bailey’s. "We're pleased to extend our commitment to community service to FISH OF SANCAP. We cannot think of a better way to invest in our community than by giving families, seniors and children the opportunity to participate in the programs, services and workshops FISH provides. We know that it takes more than just good food to nourish and build a vibrant community. It starts with taking care of people. And we are just as passionate about making food as we are about giving back to our Sanibel and Captiva neighbors.”
Mead and Richard Johnson, Bailey’s, and all their employees are always coming up with ways to help FISH. “It’s obvious,” says FISH President & CEO Maggi Feiner, “that they are dedicated to building strong relationships by the many partnerships they have cultivated to help our agency. From those in our community, to Gallo Winery and the Johnson Brothers, to the SanCap Art League and more, Bailey’s is one of our biggest advocates; they strive to create opportunities for the people in our community through their charitable contributions to FISH.”
