Fort Myers Food Drive Off To A Good Start

I showed up at 10:00 and the Harry Chapin Food Bank food drive was well under way. I went to the Estero high school drop off and was greeted by an enthusiastic group of Estero High students who had volunteered to help with gathering and sorting the food that was dropped off. When I showed up the donation boxes were half full, which made for a very impressive pile of canned goods and dry food. It was nice to see young people so upbeat and enthused about doing something positive in the Ft Myers| Lee County | SWFL area. Also present and working hard were a half dozen volunteers who regularly help at Harry Chapin, and they were happy to talk about the process involved in getting the food from the drop off point back to their warehouse off of Fowler St. in Fort Myers, and then dispersing it to the people and organizations that need it most. I asked 1 of the volunteers when we might know if they met their goal of 225,000 lbs. of food and he said they would probably make that information public by the middle of the upcoming week.
