Support Team CFPS' 5th Annual Food Drive... 1 in 6 In Central FL Go Hungry!

April 05, 2017

One in six Central Floridians struggle with the reality of hunger and food insecurity. One in six. That's one in six too many.

That's where you come in. 

We need your help. Actually, to put it more accurately, the very sameone in six need your help. Central Florida PowerSports and the Central Florida Chapter of the U.S. Spyder Ryders is holding a food drive to raise food donations for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. From now until April 29, we invite you to drop off any food you can spare at Central Florida PowerSports. Then on Saturday, April 29, Central Flordia PowerSports host a pancake breakfast followed by a ride led by the US Spyder Ryders.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a private, nonprofit organization that collects, stores and distributes donated food to more than 550 feeding partners in six Central Florida counties: Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia. Last year, with the help of numerous donors, volunteers and a caring, committed community, the food bank distributed 52 million meals to partner programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, women’s shelters, senior centers, day care centers and Kids Cafes.

In addition to helping feed the line of our neighbors who need help, Second Harvest also transforms dozens of lives directly every year.  Economically-challenged adults who graduate from our 14-week culinary training program are placed in ‘better than minimum wage’ jobs that set them and their families on a path to self-sustainability.  Yet another important activity helps connect people who are eligible to receive SNAP food assistance benefits with the resources they need to access the program and get help.

 

 

So let's help out the less fortunate in our community by supporting the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida by participating in Central Florida PowerSports' Fifth Annual Food Drive! Bring your food donations to our dealership anytime between now and Saturday, April 29th. Then visit us that Saturday for a yummy pancake breakfast followed by a fun ride led by the Central Florida chapter of the U.S. Spyder Ryders! Thanks for caring!

    The Sea-Doo GTI Class - Style, Stability, and Serious Fun

    August 10, 2018

    You know how it is. There's always that one guy; that one guy (let's call him Mr. Jones) who has to brag about all his escapades and latest gadgets: "This summer I did this...", "check out this new blah blah blah I just bought...", and so on and so forth.

    You're probably a little tired of it. He doesn't get the hint when you roll your eyes. So maybe it's time to take it to the next level. Maybe you need to buy yourself a Sea-Doo GTI.

    If you're looking for a watercraft that maximizes the fun on the minimum budget, the GTI class provides more features at an unbeatable value for money. The Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR) lets you maneuver with ease. Enjoy more time on the water with the most fuel-efficient engine in the industry and the innovative impact-resistant polytec hull. Oh, and by the way, this ride is FUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNN.

    This is also the perfect time... after all, Sea-Doo is having a great promotion that Mr. Jones doesn't know about. We're talking a $1200 rebate on GTI's, as well as 0% financing for 36 months for approved buyers!

    Enough of the whole "Keeping up with the Joneses" thing. It's time to make Mr. Jones a little jealous and shut him up for good. Buy the GTI and enjoy his frustrated silence. Case closed. You win. Drop the mic and walk away.
