Bailey’s helps throw FISH a lifeline

By Staff | Aug 15, 2013

Anne and Niclas Brunetaud and their children, Mathilde and Pierre Louis, give a food pantry certificate to Bailey's General Store employee Laitham Haddad.

In an effort to help F.I.S.H. of Sanibel, Inc. restock its food pantry with much needed supplies, Bailey’s General Store on Sanibel is holding a “Throw FISH a Lifeline” campaign in the store.

Upon entering the store, customers are given a coupon that gives them the option of adding $10 to their grocery list at checkout. At the end of the campaign, Bailey’s general manager Richard Johnson will use the funds to purchase bulk groceries most needed for the food pantry at wholesale prices, helping FISH get more value for their donations.

“Bailey’s General Store has been a great friend and neighbor to our organization, offering much needed support over many years,” said FISH executive director Maggi Feiner. “We are very grateful to the Bailey family for organizing this campaign, and we extend our sincere gratitude for their help.”

While the FISH food pantry receives the support of many islanders throughout the year, some food items are in high demand and harder to keep in stock. A partnership with Bailey’s will allow FISH to directly request the specific items needed at the time of ordering.
