• Publix Service Day at Opportunity Place, Inc

    Tuesday, April 2, 2019 more than 23 employees from Publix stores in Fort Walton Beach and Crestview volunteered at Opportunity Place on Lovejoy Rd in Fort Walton Beach as part of Publix Serves Day, which is a volunteer campaign dedicated to serving in the community. “Everyone had a great time painting rooms, organizing the pantry and doing yard work for this local shelter,” stated Jim Watterson, District Manager for Publix Super Market. “Publix Serves Day is all about giving back to our local communities, so helping a shelter for families and single women who are homeless was perfect.“ A big shout out goes to Charlie Kessler, Store Manager of Bent Creek Plaza Publix’s in Crestview for organizing the day and getting all the supplies. Opportunity Place, Inc. is also the recipient of a $2,500 check from Publix Super Markets Charities, Inc.  For ways to get engaged at Opportunity Place, Inc. go to www.opifwb.org  or call 850.659.3190 ###
