The Florida Grocery Manufacturers’ Representatives, along with contributions from our members, gives back to various charitable organizations through out the year. In 2019, we are very proud that we were able to support A Kids Place and Simply Amazing.
The GMR hosted a fun filled picnic in October with all of the children who live at A Kids Place of Tampa Bay. We hosted a Pizza Party along with Snow Cones, Bounce Houses and Face Painting all donated by the GMR. In addition, we provided Simply Amazing art boxes to each of the children.
The annual GMR Holiday luncheon was an opportunity for the GMR members to give back by sponsoring A Kids Place of Tampa Bay with gift cards for food and entertainment venues such as movies and bowling. With the generous support from our members who came to the luncheon, we presented over $3,500 in gift cards to this wonderful home for children in need. The GMR also donated $500 to them to help during the holiday season. For more information please go to www.akidsplacetb.org.
At the same holiday luncheon, we also sponsored another charity, Simply Amazing. All guests at the luncheon brought art supplies to donate to Simply Amazing so they can make more art boxes to give to children who need comfort during crisis. The GMR donated $500 to them as well to support such a wonderful cause. On another occasion, GMR contributed a $2,500 sponsorship to a Simply Amazing fundraiser.

The Florida GMR is pleased to continue a commitment of giving back to those in need. We thank each of you for your support of the GMR and the charities that we strive to serve.
