NAPLES, Fla. – 1/18/17 – Waterside Shops, the Gulf Coast’s premiere shopping and dining destination, is pleased to announce the Conservancy of Southwest Florida is the 2017 recipient of the center’s Coins for a Cause program.
“Coins for a Cause offers our community another way to partner with Waterside Shops on supporting local charitable organizations,” explains General Manager Anne Fleming. “Too often, we think we can’t affect change with our change, but we can. We’re proud that, penny by penny and dime by dime, coins collected from our fountains throughout 2017 will help ensure the wellbeing of our natural environment by supporting the Conservancy of Southwest Florida.”
The Shelter for Abused Women and Children was the recipient for the 2016 campaign which netted $10,000.
