“Vineyards Country Club and its members have strived to be good neighbors throughout Naples For more than 30 years,” said Vineyards Country Club Chief Operating Officer Paul Malonson. “In this continued spirit, we are pleased to host the food pantry to assist St. Matthew’s House. We thank our members for their generous donations to date.”

Throughout June, donations of nonperishable food items (canned, boxed, jars, bagged) may be made at the clubhouse, Racquet Center, Wellness Center or at the club’s concierge desk, located just inside the front entrance. Monetary donations are also accepted in the form of checks payable to St. Matthew’s House. For a complete list of food items needed, visit stmatthewshouse.org.

For more than 30 years, St. Matthew’s House has provided innovative solutions to fight homelessness, hunger, substance abuse and poverty in Southwest Florida.
