RCTVN had a very successful Food Drive at Winn Dixie last Saturday, April 15th. We collected 1,070 lbs of food (plus the 650 pounds that we collected and dropped off prior to this collection day). We also collected $150.00 in Publix gift cards & over $250.00 in cash. Donations were split between Beyond the Walls and Community United Methodist Church in Fruitland Park, and both organizations were extremely appreciative.
Many thanks to Susan Welsh for organizing everything (we missed you but carried on without you). Thank you to Randy Bayliss for getting us the signage we needed (and stopping by to provide moral support), Charlie Couckuyt for helping me set up and working the entire time, Bob Agnew, Tim O’Connor (and his dog, who was a hit), and Jerry & Lucille Brillante, who all encouraged Winn Dixie customers to donate, and Barbara James and Janet & Lou Mintzer as well.
Thanks also to all club members who made donations. We would not have been this successful without you.
I am very honored to work with such a giving & dedicated group of people.
