The proceeds from the sale of game programs at Friday night’s football game will go to the hurricane relief fund. Ten program prize winners will be announced after half time as an incentive to sell out the programs and increase proceeds for hurricane relief.
A group of community volunteers has organized a Hurricane Ian Relief Drive and donations will be accepted for those in need in south Florida through Monday, October 31. Seminole County residents know first hand how important drives like this are after receiving much needed supplies from far and near after Hurricane Michael.
Items needed include diapers, Pull-Ups, baby wipes, feminine products, hygiene products, laundry and dish soap, bleach, trash bags, sanitizing wipes, childrens clothing sizes 7-14, toys, games, markers and calculators.
Drop off locations for donations are the former fire station facility on Woolfork Avenue next to Leon’s Cleaners from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the Seminole County Elementary and Middle-High Schools’ front offices from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. There will also be a supply collection box at Friday night’s football game and Monday evening’s Truck or Treat event.
All donations will be delivered to the Foundation for Lee County Schools to support students and education staff of Lee County, Florida.
Monetary donations are also being solicited and can be made to the Foundation for Lee County Schools.
