“We are the World, We are the Children” Food and Diaper Drive
Brooksville, Fl. (December 16, 2013)- Employees and members of the Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce are used to making a difference in the business community of Hernando County, but throughout the months of November and December, they worked to make a difference in the lives of Hernando County’s children.
During their 2013 “We are the World, We are the Children” Food and Diaper Drive, the Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce collected 450 pounds of food and 150 pounds of diapers.
Working will Jericho Road Ministries, the Chamber distributed packs of donated diapers to other Hernando County organizations dedicated to helping children and families. Organizations benefitted by the diaper drive included A New Generation, The Life Center and The Dawn Center.
Food donations will be used to benefit The Barn at Jericho Road Ministries. The Barn provides food assistance to needy residents of Hernando County.
The Chamber would like to thank all those who participated in this year’s Food and Diaper Drive event. Anyone interested in making a donation can still do so. Donations can be dropped off at any Jericho Road Ministries Thrift Store location or the Chamber office.
