Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasano and Staff raised over $11,100 to benefit One Community Now’s 2019 Hunger Walk. The Hunger Walk is an annual event which raises money to fund the “Pack-a-Sack 4 Kids” program.
Pack-a-Sack is in many schools throughout Pasco County. Children who need food over the weekend are given a backpack of food every Friday. Full of nutritious meals, the backpacks contain enough food to sustain the children until they return to school on Monday.
“It is a great honor for our staff to be a part of this wonderful program,” comments Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “There are so many hungry children living in our community. It is a blessing that Pack-a-Sack 4 Kids is in place to make sure they have access to food. Thank you to everyone who donated to this great cause.”
Greg Giordano, Assistant Tax Collector for Communications & Special Projects presents the check to Patti Templeton, Executive Director of One Community Now and lead organizer of the Hunger Walk. The Hunger Walk is April 13th at Gulf High School, New Port Richey. For more information regarding Pack-a-Sack 4 Kids and/or the Hunger Walk, please contact Patti at 727-900-6280.
