Good Greek Moving and Storage makes a commitment each year to give back to the South Florida community that has treated us so well. We’re proud to call South Florida our home.
Our Giving Back Holiday Season 2019 includes many programs we support. All of them do fantastic acts of charity in our community, especially for children. We support these efforts because children are South Florida’s most precious asset – and the most vulnerable.
Here are some of the efforts we are participating in for Giving Back Holiday Season 2019.
A new record has been set for the number of toys donated to the 2019 United Way toy drive at WPTV in West Palm Beach – 2,700 and counting as of mid-December! That shows the great generosity of our community. Good Greek Moving and Storage boxed up toys donated at WPTV and took them to the United Way distribution center.
In an interview, Good Greek owner Spero Georgedakis said he felt great about “doing my part” but said “it’s such a small part in comparison to all the people who donated.”
He added, “We’ve been doing this for years with WPTV. It’s a great honor and we’re happy to do it. I’ve got children of my own and I can certainly empathize with those who are less fortunate during the holidays.”
Good Greek also supports Maddie’s Fight Foundation, a wonderful organization that has turned heartbreak into a noble cause. The foundation is named after Madison Lane Demers. At the age of nine, she was diagnosed with Multi Centric Osteogenic Sarcoma, an extremely rare bone cancer. She passed away less than a year later, in 2017. The foundation now provides financial assistance to families of children with cancer and supports research into finding a cure for osteosarcoma.
Good Greek also is providing transportation services for the Children’s Healing Institute Toy Drive. The institute, located in West Palm Beach, is South Florida’s leader in preventing child abuse and in providing expertise in family crisis management. The Children’s Healing Institute partners with families that have been recommended to them through many different channels such as schools, hospitals, police and community agencies. Their motto says it all: “We’re good for kids.”
Good Greek is providing transportation services for the annual Caravan of Joy Toy Drive, which is now in its 22nd year. Donated toys are left at locations throughout South Florida and then transported to agencies around the area where they can be delivered to kids. It’s a wonderful drive that brings joy to kids throughout South Florida. The toys will go to organizations such as Miami Children’s Home Society, Hialeah Housing Authority and Voices of Children for Broward County.
Good Greek also supported the “dueling toy drive” between Mo and Sally on the 105.5 FM Morning Show. The toys collected in this drive go to the children of people serving in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. It’s a great way of saying “thank you” to those who sacrifice to protect our country.
Good Greek Moving and Storage gladly donates time and resources to support these wonderful programs and organizations that focus on making children happier and healthier. We encourage you to also share what you can this holiday season with those less fortunate.
