Lake County employees organize food drive

RELEASE DATE: March 26, 2010

TAVARES — The 700-plus employees of the Lake County Board of County Commissioners are embarking on its most daunting food drive to date.

Food Drive

County employees started a food drive this week to help local food banks. Collected food will be sent to more than a dozen food banks located throughout the County.

“Normally the food drive is done over the holidays, but because of the great need throughout the County we’re conducting this continuous food drive,” said Niki Booth, an office associate in the County Manager’s Office who is helping to coordinate the food drive along with Brenda DeMartino from the Department of Growth Management and Erika Greene from the Department of Public Resources.

For more information about the food drive, call the Lake County Manager’s Office at (352) 343-9888. Bin locations for the food drive are located at:
