Taylor Allen Properties, a full service real estate agency specializing in commercial, residential and investment sales in Northwest Florida, invites the public to join them in a grand opening celebration at the agency’s new headquarters, 1219 Airport Road, Suite 311 in Destin.

Scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, the event will include complimentary appetizers and beverages. Guests who bring a plastic jar of peanut butter or jelly to donate to Food For Thought Outreach Inc. will be entered into a giveaway. In addition, a special raffle will be held for multiple prizes with all proceeds going to the Okaloosa chapter of the non-profit organization.

“We’re excited to welcome both our peers and the public into our new space to show them all what Taylor Allen Properties has to offer,” said Jennifer Knaepple, broker for the agency. “Our new location offers better accessibility for our customers, more room for in-house growth and a modern and comfortable aesthetic. We’ve personally been involved as volunteers with Food For Thought since 2013 and believe our grand opening is the perfect avenue to promote their new growth into Okaloosa county along with our own.”

Food For Thought Outreach Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization based in Santa Rosa Beach that provides backpacks filled with healthy, easy to prepare food for students who are dependent on free or reduced school meals. Founded in 2010, the nonprofit currently serves 15 schools in Walton and Okaloosa counties, providing backpacks for 1,200 students each week.

“Chad and Jennifer Knaepple embody the values of our organization and have gone above and beyond to support our work fighting childhood hunger for the last few years,” said Tiffanie Nelson, founder and executive director of Food For Thought Outreach Inc. “We are grateful for their support as they open their new office in Destin.”

Longtime locals, the Knaepples founded Taylor Allen Properties in 2013 with the intention of creating a service-based real estate agency focused on hard work, integrity and family.
