Casey DeSantis is no fan of the Left’s big government social programs.

She understands that faith-based organizations and private individuals do a much better job taking care of those in need. 

And Casey DeSantis showed up with a $10,000 check that had workers at one food pantry jumping for joy.

Casey DeSantis is an inspiration

Casey DeSantis has been her husband’s biggest ally and top asset on the campaign trail since he first ran for Governor in 2018.

A former Emmy-Award winning television personality, Casey DeSantis has gained a large following of supporters over the past few years.

She became an inspiration for millions of moms across the country when she won a battle against breast cancer after undergoing months of chemotherapy treatments.

Casey then used her struggle to fuel her passion to find a cure for cancer and secured hundreds of millions of dollars in the state budget for research.

But Casey DeSantis’ work in her husband’s administration goes beyond her passion for finding a cure to cancer.

Faith-based organizations and private individuals first

She has always been passionate about helping children and others in need through faith-based organizations and private individuals instead of big government social programs.

In July of 2022, Casey DeSantis launched the Hope Florida Fund, an initiative that brings public and private sectors together to help families in need.

On Thursday, Casey DeSantis awarded six nonprofit organizations in Collier County with $10,000 each from the Hope Florida Fund.

“As the Hope Florida initiative has expanded, we continue to identify ways to strengthen and grow our network of dedicated nonprofits across the state,” she said. “Meeting the needs of Floridians is a collaborative effort,” the First Lady continued. “I am grateful for the opportunity to recognize the good work being done by these Collier County nonprofits, and to support them in their efforts through the Hope Florida Fund.”

“First Lady Casey DeSantis awarded six Collier County nonprofit organizations with $10,000 each through the Hope Florida Fund,” Capital Soup reported. “Recipients recognized by the First Lady were: Golden PAWS Assistance Dogs, St. Matthew’s House, Our Daily Bread Food Pantry, Project B.U.I.L.D., Baby Basics of Collier County, and Trailways Camps.”

One of the organizations that received $10,000 is the St. Matthews House.

DeSantis shared a photo of her presenting the check to staff from St. Matthews.

“@stMatthewsHouse provides innovative solutions to fight homelessness, hunger, substance abuse, and poverty in the Naples area,” she wrote on X. “It was an honor to meet with them today and award them for their faithful work in the Naples community.”

According to DeSantis, more than 86,000 individuals have been served by the Hope Florida Fund since its inception.
