(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- Commissioner Jose "Pepe" Diaz joined Centro Comunitario A.F.E, a non-profit organization located in the town of Medley, for a community food drive where he distributed food packages to 60 families. Residents were asked to complete a simple form with basic family information before receiving the goods. The distribution took place on Sunday, February 19, 2012 at 8248 NW South River Drive.
Another food drive will be held, February 26 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Centro Comunitario A.F.E., this time with the Coca-Cola Company joining in as a partner in "14 Days of Neighborly Love." The company will be giving away free beverages.
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.
