Chloe Friedman, Communication Assistant for the Bonita Springs Chamber of Commerce organized the event. Bonita Springs Chamber President/CEO, Christine Ross said, “The young professionals are always looking for ways to positively impact their community and this food drive is a perfect example of how they think creatively. With school letting out, they know the demands at the Assistance Office will be higher so they got out in front of the challenge and collected over 230 pounds of food. They are an awesome group whose influence and activities are growing each month.”
Whether a young professional is looking for a new career, just starting out, or already on a career track, the Bonita Springs Area Young Professionals provide the tools to create and enhance a valuable network of resources and friends, while providing access to informative and fun events.
