Record number of donations collected for Fuel the Bus campaign
First Coast Energy helps St. Vincent’s provide medical care to local families in need
St. Vincent’s HealthCare, a ministry of Ascension, the nation’s largest Catholic and non-profit healthcare system, has received $76,500 in charitable donations from First Coast Energy’s seventh annual Fuel the Bus campaign, a record for the initiative. The event, held at all Daily’s locations throughout Florida, ran from February 1st – March 27th. All donations benefit the St. Vincent’s Mobile Health Outreach Ministry.
“Since our founding 100 years ago, the Mission of St. Vincent’s HealthCare has always been graciously supported by our friends in the community,” said Jane R. Lanier, CFRE, President of the St. Vincent’s Foundation. “We can’t thank First Coast Energy and Daily’s customers enough for continuing that tradition of community support in such a significant way.”
The St. Vincent’s Mobile Health Outreach Ministry brings fully staffed doctors-offices-on-wheels to areas of the community where such services are needed the most. It is the only mobile provider of free acute and preventive medical care in Northeast Florida. The program began in 1991 and promotes prevention through health screenings and education throughout the region.
“We are extremely proud of the generous support displayed by our loyal customers towards this year’s Fuel the Bus campaign,” said First Coast Energy CEO Aubrey Edge. “Our longstanding partnership with St. Vincent’s HealthCare allows Daily’s, together with our customers, to support this valuable ministry within our hometown community of Northeast Florida.”
Since its inception, the Daily’s Fuel the Bus campaign together with Daily’s THE TRADITION golf tournament has raised more than $3,000,000 for this crucial community health ministry.
