The campaign collected more than 1,600 non-perishable food items — some 1,200 pounds of food — for the Community Cooperative. Pushing the Envelope staff members also donated more than 80 hours to the campaign, 15 of which included volunteering at the Community Café Soup Kitchen.

With the support of community members and local businesses over the years, Pushing the Envelope’s CAN IT! Campaign has resulted in the donation of more than 6,000 pounds of food to Community Cooperative.

Participating collection locations have included: Annunciation of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church; Around The Clock Fitness; BB&T – Oswald Trippe and Company; Be Fabulous Salon & Spa; Boomz Barbershop; Complete Nutrition; George John Salon; Germain Arena; iHeartRadio; Lee County Electric Cooperative; Rapid Print; Salon Adrian; Team Willis Boxing Family Fitness; The Nest Home and Garden; Twin Cutz; and Vogue Hair and Nail Salon.

“Giving back to our community and helping those in need is part of our company culture,” said Samantha Scott, APR, president of Pushing the Envelope. “Our team stepped up and spread that vision to our clients, colleagues and friends this year to create a great impact for those less fortunate in Southwest Florida. We’re thrilled with the result and honored to help.”
