Edison Mall and American Legion Post 38 Partner to Fight Against Hunger

Canned Food Drive to be held at Edison Mall from May 15th-May 31st

Fort Myers, Florida (May 6th, 2021)  In partnership with American Legion Rabe O. Wilkinson Post 38, Edison Mall will be hosting a canned food drive to help combat hunger in our community. Located in Suite 1480, across from JCPenney, the canned food drive will be taking place from May 15th to May 31st. Edison Mall and the American Legion challenge the community to help us fill Suite 1480 with canned good and other nonperishables, all 1,591 square feet.

“We at the Edison Mall will always strive to be a community partner. We will help, support and give back to the community in any way we can,” said Brad Lunn, General Manager. “The American Legion provides free food to our veterans through their food pantry. As we have watched COVID affect our community, our veterans have been hard hit. Partnering with the American Legion Post 38 is another fantastic opportunity and we are happy to host the food drive.”

The Edison Mall and American Legion Post 38 are encouraging the community to help fight the battle against hunger. Bring a canned good or nonperishable item to Suite 1480 during mall hours. Suite 1480 is located at Entrance C, right across from JCPenney. Edison Mall shopping hours are Monday -Saturday, 11AM-7PM and Sunday, 12PM-6PM.  Guests are invited to fill the space!
