JM Family Enterprises Hosts Golf FORE Good Fundraiser
Volunteers built putting greens made from canned and boxed goods at JM Family’s business locations

JM Family Enterprises got into the swing of giving, hosting its annual food drive campaign: a miniature golf-themed challenge aptly dubbed Golf FORE Good. Through the power of teamwork and the spirit of giving, the company collectively raised nearly $50,000 to help food bank partners across its footprint to stock their shelves and drive out hunger. This total will account for nearly 500,000 meals.

“With the rising cost of food, more and more families are relying on food banks to find their next meal,” said Lisa Davis, manager of Corporate Community Impact, JM Family. “The dollars generously donated by our associates as part of the Golf FORE Good campaign allow these organizations to continue providing those facing hunger and food insecurity with nutritious meals.”

During the Golf FORE Good campaign, volunteers built putting greens made from canned and boxed goods at eight of JM Family’s business locations. Associates were then encouraged to “chip in” and donate $25 to their local food bank for the chance to play a round. Prizes were awarded for creative putting green designs, and for sinking a hole-in-one.

“Associates really put their creativity, and golf skills, to the test building very impressive mini golf putting greens. Who knew you could make a Toyota Tundra out of canned beans and a bridge out of cereal boxes!,” said Davis.

Golf FORE Good beneficiaries include Feeding South Florida, Banks-Jackson County Food Bank, Feeding the Gulf Coast and St. Louis Area Foodbank, Central Alabama Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, North Texas Food Bank and Salvation Army of Aberdeen (SD).
