I found this info on another site...I hope it is ok
to post it here, but this is such a great idea I had to share....
How many times have you stayed at a rental and had food leftover at the end of your vacation? Don't throw it out...donate it and make a difference!
Rental Agencies that make up the Sanibel Captiva Vacation Rental Managers Association (SCVRMA) have made arrangements with the Harry Chapin Food Bank to get that food to those in need, including children, seniors living on fixed incomes, the working poor and hurricane victims.
When you rent through any of the members of SCVRMA, at check-in you will be given a shopping bag for any unused, unopened items. When you check-out, simply return the bag of food along with your keys. Those bags are then donated to the Food Bank by the rental agency.
To date, 700 pounds of canned goods and other grocery items have already been collected and donated from visitors.
SCVRMA consists of (in alphabetical order):
Cottages To Castles
Grande Island Vacations
Island Realty Group
Remax Of The Islands
Royal Shell Vacations
Sanibel One Vacations
Select Vacation Properties
VIP Vacation Rentals
A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes....
