The Benison Center was formed in 2017 shortly after Hurricane Irma made landfall and struck Southwest Florida. The devastation that it caused in Immokalee made us see the need to provide long-term assistance to the community; we serve as a bridge that links people to resources that are needed in times of devastation. Whenever companies have excess product, we make sure that the products are put to great use.
Dedicated to Social Responsibility
Our role is to spread donated products worth millions of dollars to nonprofit agencies, churches, and schools throughout Southwest Florida. As a result of this resourceful program, more than 50 nonprofit agencies are better equipped to serve an area with nearly 44% of men, women, and children live below the national poverty line.
The Benison Center assists its partners in serving the people at the heart of the community—mothers, fathers, the elderly, and many more. The Benison Center helps its partners distribute basic goods such as personal care items, diapers, cleaning supplies and housewares. For a nominal access fee to our warehouse, agencies and churches that participate in our "Gift in Kind" program will receive various materials. These materials strengthen their ability to provide worthwhile services and programs.
The Benison Center proudly serves as a distribution hub for World Vision, one of our major partners, a global Christian humanitarian organization. It is because of our alliance with World Vision that we are able to be in a prime position to serve our communities better and help every family reach its full potential.
Aside from World Vision, we have also established partnerships with Living Hungry and Farm Share. Living Hungry utilizes a hands-on approach in its battle against hunger. Meanwhile, Farm Share distributes surplus food to homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and churches.
