Each Christmas Season, the Heart of Florida Environmental companies participate in the Christmas Promise, a charity event sponsored by its parent company, Waste Connections. Each year this event provides thousands of bicycles to needy children.
Vendors, employees and local officials contributed to the effort with Waste Connections matching their donations.
