The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY JAN 15, 2020

A whopping 2,423 pounds of food was collected this holiday season at UTC’s Holidays on the Green to benefit All Faiths Food Bank. The amount translates to 3,634 meals for children, families, seniors and veterans in need in the community. From Nov. 15 through Jan. 6, visitors of UTC’s festive winter event were encouraged to bring new, nonperishable food items in exchange for ticket discounts and special prizes. Hundreds of generous supporters rallied behind the effort to raise more than a ton of food.
