Eating For Advocacy at Niceville McAlister’s to benefit kids at ECCAC Niceville & DeFuniak Springs, FL (June 19, 2017)…

The Emerald Coast Advocacy Center’s (ECCAC) Eating For Advocacy program on June 28, from 4 to 10 p.m., will feature recently opened McAlister’s Deli in Niceville, located at 1154 John Sims Parkway, in front of the Walmart Supercenter. They will generously donate 10% of their restaurant’s sales during this time period. McAlister’s is a fast-casual restaurant chain known for its sandwiches, spuds soups, salads, desserts and McAlister’s Famous Sweet Tea.

“Each month this year, Eating For Advocacy has been helping our kids,” commented ECCAC’s director of development, Kim Henderson. “So many of us eat out, it’s a fun way to try different places and give back at the same time. If your restaurant is interested in participating, please email me at kim@eccac.org or call 850-833- 9237, Ext. 283.”

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. The Center’s child-friendly facilities house a multidisciplinary team of child protection personnel, prosecutors, law enforcement, DCF, therapists, and ECCAC staff and volunteers. In ECCAC’s 17-year history, over 11,000 children have received more than 40,000 services to include mental health therapy, crisis intervention, referrals to other community providers, interviews and medicals. Services are provided at no cost by
ECCAC.

To volunteer, make a donation, or for further information about the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Centers, visit www.eccac.org. If abuse is suspected, call the anonymous Florida Abuse Hotline at 1-800- 96-ABUSE.
