One of the local long-term care facilities sponsors a monthly breakfast that is open to the public with an outcome being charitable contributions. What happens is that the facility pays the costs of the food and for a relatively low price (additional donations are accepted), folks enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast and the proceeds received are given to a local agency. This month the agency that received over $400 was Family Promise.
What a great idea! Certainly the facility receives names of potential future residents in the process (there are a couple of door prizes randomly chosen from those who fill out slips with their names and phone numbers), but what a creative way to do public outreach, as well as public relations. Hmmm….
