Goodwill Collects More Than Two Tons of Food for People in Need

Share

Goodwill would like to thank everyone who donated during the recent food drive for people in need during the COVID-19 crisis. Generous donors dropped off 4,507 lbs of nonperishable food at Goodwill stores and donation centers in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties during a food drive from April 15-30. The donations will help supply Feeding Tampa Bay’s community outreach programs, which are experiencing an unprecedented number of food requests during this time of record unemployment.
