Costa Enterprises – McDonalds supports FHEC with $1,500 donation
Costa Enterprises, which operates 19 McDonald’s locations in Northwest Florida, recently presented a $1,500 donation to Fisher House of the Emerald Coast, Inc. through their Coffee for a Cause campaign. The Costa family donated 50 percent of net proceeds from Monday coffee sales in the month of January to a local non-profit agency. Donations made to Fisher House enable the organization to continue supporting military families during medical needs with lodging and transportation. Fisher House, located on Eglin AFB opened in September of 2010, and has saved military families over $1,000,000 in lodging and transportation. The geographic footprint offers services to residents from Pensacola to Panama City.
The check was presented to board members Gordon Fornell and Katy Mitchell, along with board president, Teresa Halverson. Representatives of Costa Enterprises – McDonalds included Roslyn Snyder, Steven Killebrew, David Costa, Jr., Jackie Wells, Dennis Ealy and Jesse Bell.
“David and his family have always made giving back to the communities they serve a top priority,” said Teresa Halverson, board of director’s president. “The program that they created has become a trendsetter for other operators and we were honored to be selected again. “
