Food Drive @ Paddock Mall w/WESH & 2nd Harvest

Food Drive @ Paddock Mall w/WESH & 2nd Harvest

We are very thankful for the folks at WESH and 2nd Harvest from Orlando to help feed the needy in Marion County Florida. This years food drive we hope to beat our total from last year we collected 6,441 pounds of products. Only 184 pounds of that were non-food items including pet food!

WESH is also celebrating 30 years of encouraging others to “Share Their Christmas” by helping to feed those less fortunate during the Holidays.

2nd Harvest will be providing the SEMI-Truck that will haul the food over to our facility in NE Ocala where we will be ready to prepare the pallets for the Food Pantries to pick-up their share of food.

We serve over 44 food pantries in Marion county including 3 soup kitchens and one organization that participates in the Backpacks for kids to help feed their families at home.

Our mission continues to eradicate hunger in Marion County Florida.

YOU CAN HELP by bringing non-perishable items to the Paddock Mall on Wednesday, Dec. 9. We will be set-up and ready with WESH doing live broadcasts starting at 6:00 AM through 12:30 PM.  It’s easy to drive-up with your vehicle and our volunteers will help unload and our packers will put them on the pallet.

Everyone is also welcome to stay and volunteer if desired.  THANKS in advance for your support. Please help spread the news and hope to see you there!
