Spreading Sunshine at the Club

Sunshine Ace Hardware is a family-owned, Naples-based company with a core value of “Care for your Neighbor.” Thankfully, the Boys & Girls Club is one of its neighbors!

The team from Sunshine Ace recently surprised the Club with a truckload of back-toschool essentials, including individual- and classroom-sized hand sanitizer bottles, wet wipes, facial tissues and drinking straws.

“The Boys & Girls Club is incredibly fortunate to have community partners like Sunshine Ace that understand the club’s role in helping children and teens reach their full potential,” said Megan McCarthy Beauvais, President and CEO of the Boys & Girls Club. “These supplies ensure that we’ll continue offering a safe, clean environment for our student members to learn, play and prosper.”
