Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center receives donation from Costa Enterprises’ McCafé With A Cause Niceville and DeFuniak Springs, FL (May 10, 2016)…The Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center (ECCAC) received a $1,500 check from Costa Enterprises’ McCafé With A Cause initiative. The program was designed and developed by Costa Enterprises, owners of twenty McDonalds in Northwest Florida. ECCAC was the recipient of a portion of McDonalds coffee sales each Monday during the month of April. Eleven other area charities participate in the other months of the year. “We are grateful that this is our second year to be chosen as a recipient of the McCafé With A Cause program,” said ECCAC CEO Julie Hurst. “Now with our two locations in Niceville and DeFuniak Springs, every dollar counts to provide our many services to help our kids.” ECCAC’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect, protect children in Okaloosa and Walton Counties, and restore the lives and futures of these impacted children. Both Centers house a multidisciplinary team of child protection personnel, prosecutors, law enforcement, DCF, therapists, staff and volunteers. Services are provided at no cost by the 501-C-3 non-profit organization. For further information or to make a donation, visit www.eccac.org or call 850-833-9237.
