local food pantries often find their stock of non-perishable food items
depleted after the holidays. The Nature Coast Volunteer Center and Retired
& Senior Volunteer Program is holding a food drive in honor of Martin Luther
King, Jr., who once asked “What are you doing for others?” Our goal is to help
our local food pantries serve the citizens of Citrus County by providing
nutritional food for their families.
food donations will be collected December 22, 2018 through January 19, 2019.
Collection boxes will be set up around the county, including: Citrus County
Resource Center in Lecanto, all Citrus County Libraries, and four Community
Centers. For a complete list of collection locations, please call (352) 527-5959.
Luther King devoted his life to advancing equality, social justice, and
opportunity for all and voiced that everyone has a role to play making America
what it ought to be. By serving on this day and throughout the year we honor
Dr. King and help realize his dream of equality and opportunity for all. We are
encouraging residents to gather friends, neighbors, church groups, clubs and
civic organizations to join us in supporting these projects by registering to
public is welcome to join us 10:00 – noon on Tuesday, January 22, 2018 at the
