Commissioner Jose "Pepe" Diaz joins local non-profit organization and hosts food giveaway as part of his "14 days of Neighborly Love" initiative


(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 
Commissioner Jose "Pepe" Diaz will be joining The Community Center AFE, a non-profit organization located in the town of Medley, for a community food drive where he will be distributing food packages to those in attendance. To receive the goods baskets, residents will only be asked to complete a simple form with basic family information. The distribution will take place on Sunday, February 19, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at 8248 NW South River Drive.

The “14 Days of Neighborly Love – Inspiring Random Acts of Kindness” initiative, motivated in part by Valentine’s Day, involves businesses and organizations donating their time and services from February 14 to February 27 to residents as a way of showing love for their neighbors and community. Until February 27, residents can take advantage of several services and goods offered at a discount or for free, such as tax preparation, marriage counseling, car washes, and more.

For more information on the initiative, visit or call the commissioner’s office at 305-599-1200.
