All communities grow and prosper as a result of the efforts both individuals and local businesses make to create lasting improvements for everyone.

As one of Kavaliro’s core values, community involvement takes a special commitment. One team member in particular is devoted to these causes and the coordination it takes to make things happen. Lisa Moore has more than four years of experience working with Kavaliro as public relations officer and has recently been appointed Community Relations Director.+/-»
“Fueling the Community”
Sparked by the 60 Minutes documentary on the homeless situation in Central Florida, a piece that made 60 Minutes history, local staffing firm Kavaliro continues to make a commitment to help feed the hungry within the community. Kavaliro partnered with Seminole County Public Schools in support of its Backpack Program, and through the last four food drives collected more than 14,000 food items.
The program benefits students who receive free or reduced lunch, or families facing financial difficulties. Each Friday backpacks are filled at the school with nutritious food to be sent home with the students, providing 10 to 15 needful families with two breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners for the weekend. The empty backpacks are returned the following Monday to be refilled for other families. Because the need is so great, the families rotate each week.
“The 60 Minutes story moved all of us here at Kavaliro,” said Lisa Moore, community relations director at Kavaliro, “so much that we just knew we had to help in some capacity. Being that commitment is one of our core values, we are taking this opportunity to make a difference, and we encourage other Central Florida businesses to do the same.”
We are very proud to have collected more than 17,095 items of food, and counting!
Moore has led some of our largest community efforts including spearheading a major fund raising event for Hospice of the Comforter and working in conjunction with Cornerstone Hospice, Derby Days, The American Red Cross, and The Central Florida Marine Corp Foundation, along with many others. She led our efforts to raise money for the AUSA Sunshine Chapter sponsoring wounded warriors and their attendance at the Annual Army Ball.
