Neighbors 4 Neighbors launches food drive to benefit Feeding South Florida
CBS4, Neighbors 4 Neighbors, Bank Atlantic and Baptist Medical Plazas have partnered with Feeding South Florida to collect non perishable human and pet food for our South Florida neighbors in need. Joining the effort are Miami Dade and Broward County Schools, and numerous community and faith-based organizations. The campaign, “Food 4 South Florida,” runs from September 1, 2010 through October 1, 2010. September is National Hunger Awareness month.
Feeding South Florida (formerly Daily Bread Food Bank) is a not-for-profit organization that empowers other South Florida not-for-profit organizations to assist people in need and improve their lives. Feeding South Florida does this by providing food and other grocery products, and by educating and engaging our community to fight hunger and poverty. Through a local network of 800 not-for-profit organizations, Feeding South Florida strives to serve children, the elderly, the mentally and physically challenged, veterans and the working poor with compassion and integrity.
Those interested in participating can register on the web at cbs4.com/neighbors. Once they’ve registered they’ll be connected with a Feeding South Florida transportation Manager who will arrange pick up directly from your group, office or organization when needed. CBS4 talent will also be on hand at selected drop off points to meet and greet the public.
“This will be the first year with so many drop-off locations and we expect to double or even triple our previous collection,” said Lynne Cameron, Executive Director of Neighbors 4 Neighbors. “This may well be the most productive South Florida food drive Neighbors 4 Neighbors has ever been involved in.”
The public is invited to drop donations at all BankAtlantic, and Baptist Medical Plaza locations in Dade and Broward. A complete list of drop off sites is available on the CBS. Website, www.cbs4.com/neighbors.
