Donate 2000 lbs. of food to the Jerry Doliner Food Bank
Daytona Beach, FL (March 23, 2020) – Rick Kay, the Director of Security as well as the teams from Daytona Beach and Orange City, donated over 2,000 lbs. of food to the Jerry Doliner Food Bank on Monday March 23rd. Executive Director Gloria Max and Ray Max were there to assist with the unloading and storage for distribution. “It was a pleasure to be able to assist the community with this donation,” said, Michael Stringer, Asst. General Manager.
The Jerry Doliner Food Bank provides services to those in need in Volusia & Flagler Counties regardless of religion. The Social Service Council of the Jewish Federation maintains a well-stocked crisis food bank which provides emergency food to people who “fall through the cracks” of the system. The food bank provides staples such as cereals, juices, canned vegetables and fruits, canned meats, peanut butter, pasta, canned and dry milk, paper goods and other items deemed necessary for survival.
When the Federation receives donations of clothing, household items and furniture, it is distributed to the needy free of charge.
They help 24,500 people a year receive bags of food that would last them at least a week and a half. Although we’ve seen improvements in the economy overall, they continue to see an increase in the number of families with children, including a larger number of grandparents that are now for caring for their grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren. Our organization also assists people with clothing, furniture, household goods, and medical equipment.
