Breeze Newspapers donates to OOA
Breeze Newspapers Publisher Ray Eckenrode, left, recently presented a $250 check to Capt. John “Giddy Up” Bunch, founder of Operation Open Arms. OAA is a longstanding Southwest Florida-based nonprofit organization that provides military outreach, often in the form of fishing-related vacations, for active duty service personnel. The check represents a portion of the proceeds from the newspaper company’s recent “Veterans Salute” magazine. The Breeze Newspapers publications include the Island Reporter and Sanibel-Captiva Islander.
