The spirit of Thanksgiving is alive and well as Commissioner Lynda Bell, in collaboration with the volunteers from Farm Share, distributed turkeys, chickens and foods suitable for a complete holiday meal to over 700 underprivileged families during Commissioner Lynda Bell’s 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Food Giveaway on Saturday, November 10, 2012, at Cutler Ridge Park in Cutler Bay, FL.


“It was so gratifying to see so many volunteers from Homestead Job Corps, Boy and Girl Scout Troops, as well as resident volunteers from all corners of District 8, give so much of themselves to help distribute much-needed food so that many needy families in District 8 will be able to celebrate Thanksgiving Day like the rest of us. Because of their selfless efforts maybe, just maybe, it will give these needy families a little more hope and confidence for a better New Year.” Said Commissioner Bell.
