In 2007 Sal and his wife, Debbie, founded Grand Vista Ministries, Inc. Their “Essentials Project” supplies free toiletries to the hundreds of homeless and needy families throughout Charlotte County, Florida.

Essentials Project

The Essentials Project was born out of the tremendous need that homeless individuals and families have for the everyday toiletries that many of us take for granted. Items like soaps. shampoos, deodorants, tooth brushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, and feminine products are just some of the many “essentials” that we distribute. Our distribution centers include the Charlotte County Public School System, the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, and local churches.
