Thanksgiving drive brings in more than 200 bags of donations for struggling families

November 19, 2019

 | 

Last weekend, generous residents, customers and friends took time out of their busy weekend to donate groceries for my annual Thanksgiving drive at Heritage Landing!

 

More than 200 bags of donations were brought in addition to palates of drinks, household cleaners, paper towels and much more (in fact, this photo was taken just halfway through the drive!)

 

All donations went straight to the Emergency Services & Homeless Coalition of St. Johns County. The non-profit helps struggling families get back on their feet through food redistribution, clothing donations, neighborhood watch services and assistance accessing Medicaid, disability insurance and other resources. The Coalition also focuses on creating stability for the kids of its families with tutoring, after-school snacks, computer training, recreational activities and summer camps.

 

I want to thank each and every person who took the time and expense to donate!

Davidson Networking Spotlight: Nicole Fletcher at Nicole’s Cleaning LLC

Posted by in Events, News

For Nicole Fletcher, the path to career success included a detour through another field and lots of practice in her home life. Before launching Nicole’s Cleaning LLC, she followed her dream of working with money by studying to be an accountant.

 

“I realized that I wouldn’t be happy working with money unless it was mine,” said Nicole, noting that the coursework did help her next career. “The classes I took set me up to be able to run the books of my company, I just didn’t know what kind of business I wanted to have.”

 

The mother of four boys had become an expert in house cleaning, so she decided to utilize her expertise and enter the field. “I liked the idea of setting my own hours, when and where I would work and how much I could make,” Nicole said. “Now, I set the hours and I never have a day off.” She joked, “What a mean boss I have.”

 

Nicole recently took time out of her busy schedule to answer some questions about her business. Read on to learn more!

 

What sets you apart from other cleaning services?  My thought is, you are paying me to do a job you could easily do yourself, so I have to do it better than you would do it yourself. My attention to detail, doing what I would expect to be done if I was paying someone to do it and overall pride in my work sets my services apart.

We are thrilled to announce the addition of Builders Care as beneficiary of our 4th annual Davidson Cares Clay Day event on Thursday, October 24! Other sponsored charities include St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS) and Investing in Kids (INK!).

 

The charitable arm of Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA), Builders Care was created in 2001 in conjunction with HabiJax to fill a very specific gap in services. While HabiJax builds homes for those in need, Builders Care focuses on home repairs for low income and elderly residents in Duval, St. Johns, Nassau, Clay and Baker counties.

 

“So many people have homes that desperately need repairs,” said Justin Brown, Executive Officer of Builders Care. “Many of them are older widows, many disabled, who need roof repairs or access ramps. We are the boots on the ground helping to keep them in their homes.”
