This will be the 13th year these organizations have partnered for this event. Similar events are conducted for Thanksgiving and the Christmas Holiday.

Feeding families in need isn’t just a holiday project for the church. Throughout the year the church continues their work through the Beach Community Food Pantry. The pantry is open every week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at the Calvary Episcopal Church. The pantry is always accepting monetary donations and all non-perishable food products to keep the pantry going. If anyone would like to help with holiday meals, or the food pantry, please contact the Calvary Episcopal Church at 727-595-2374, or see their website at www.calvaryirb.org for additional information.

The media is invited to cover this event.
