Local hardware store supports American Red Cross programs

To assist the Hurricane Harvey national relief efforts, Sunshine Ace Hardware is accepting monetary donations to the American Red Cross at all eight locations in Collier, Lee, Charlotte and Pinellas counties. The community is invited to give donations in-store at the register, no purchase necessary. All donations are sent directly to the American Red Cross to support hurricane relief programs.

“We are extremely saddened by the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey along the Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana,” said Michael Wynn, Sunshine Ace Hardware president. “Realizing the extent of damage and the difficulties the storm has brought people and businesses, we want to offer the community a way for them to offer their assistance. We encourage the community to stop by their local Sunshine Ace store and make a donation to the American Red Cross. Making a donation will assist those who are impacted and help their communities to get back on their feet.”

The Red Cross has launched a massive relief response to this devastating storm and needs financial donations to be able to provide immediate disaster relief. To help those affected by Hurricane Harvey, visit redcross.org, call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit a Sunshine Ace Hardware store today.

Sunshine Ace Hardware stores are located in downtown Naples, east Naples, Golden Gate, Bonita Springs, San Carlos, Marco Island, Port Charlotte and Largo. For store locations and hours, visit www.sunshineace.com.
