A helping hand for the home – Christmas in Naples brings gifts year ’round to those in need -- a chat with Vincent “Cap” Mona.
Written by Lance Shearer
In the affluent community that is Naples, Florida, there is a level of need that may be surprising. On the fringes of the city, on country lanes or in quiet neighborhoods, people are struggling to get by, in homes that are sometimes coming down around them.
There are many low-income homeowners, who own their homes, but cannot afford to pay for the work needed to keep them livable. That’s where Cap Mona is putting his effort, working to make a difference, and put help where it’s needed.
“We’re not just redoing a house,” he said. “We’re changing people’s lives.”
Mona, whose company, Washington, D.C.-based Mona Electric Group, is one of the world’s largest electrical contractors, came to Naples to enjoy the good life. While he enjoys a privileged lifestyle today, he has never forgotten his humble roots, and for decades has sought out opportunities to help those less fortunate.
