CAPE CORAL, FL - Greco Jewelers at 4307 Del Prado Boulevard in Cape Coral is sponsoring a “Share the Warmth” blanket drive benefiting Bootstrap Homeless Ministry in Cape Coral. The drive is running through February 29. All types and sizes of new or gently used blankets will be graciously accepted.
Blankets can be dropped off at Greco Jewelers Monday-Friday 10 a.m-5:30 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.-noon.
“As evening temperatures drop, we realize that many people in our community are struggling to pay heating costs, or, even worse, don’t have a residence to call their own,” said Len Greco, owner of Greco Jewelers.
“We want to be part of the Cape Coral Bootstrap Homeless Ministry mission to let individuals and families know they are cared for by providing blankets to help get them through these colder evenings. This program is part of Greco Jewelers’ ongoing commitment to giving back to the Cape Coral community where we do business,” Greco said.
Said Cape Coral Bootstrap Homeless Ministry Board member and Clothing/Donation Supervisor Nancy Caldwell, “we are pleased that Greco is taking a role in looking after others in Cape Coral, and I’m sure these blankets will be a wonderful comfort to those in our community.
