Over the course of a single month, a remarkable 4,360 contributions were gathered, collectively weighing in at 2,126 pounds!

Committed to supplying food for individuals facing economic challenges in the region, 13 businesses and organizations in southwest Florida collaborated with PTE for the food drive as designated drop-off points for collecting donations.

Since its inception in 2010, the CAN IT! Campaign food drive has collected thousands of items for Community Cooperative, resulting in more than 25,000 pounds of donated food.

“The CAN IT! Campaign has successfully contributed to the fight against hunger for the last thirteen years. This year, the need persisted and was amplified a year after Hurricane Ian. We are grateful to be able to help our community and for our community partners who helped us help so many,” said Samantha Scott, APR, PTE president.

Giving back to the community is an integral part of Pushing the Envelope’s company culture. The firm plans to host the campaign again in 2024. For more information or to help, please contact Yliana@getpushing.com.
