SEMINOLE – Mayor Leslie Waters initiated a 2014 citywide, yearlong canned food drive at the beginning of the year. Her goal is to have collected 18,739 items by the end of the year, representing one item per Seminole resident.
“Due to the generosity of our citizens and spirit of competition in the business community, and schools, the first quarter result is 7,983 collected items, which is almost 43 percent of our year-end goal,” Mayor Waters said.
She added, “We really popped the tops off the cans first quarter. Spring is in the air now, so let’s continue to fling-it, roll-’em and drop off food items at the locations listed below.”
Drop-off locations throughout the city include:
• Seminole City Hall • Seminole-SPC Library • Seminole Recreation Center • Seminole Fire Station #29 on 113th Street • Seminole Public Works on 70th Avenue • Seminole Chamber of Commerce • Publix on 113th Street • Winn-Dixie at Park Boulevard and Starkey Road • Winn-Dixie on Seminole Boulevard • Seminole Square • Freedom Square, Seminole Gardens • Seminole Assembly of God • Seminole First Baptist Church • Blessed Sacrament Church • Dairy Queen • KE Bay Pines Properties, LLC. • iMapp Realty Group, Inc. • American Woman Fitness Center on Bay Pines Boulevard • St. Petersburg College – Seminole Campus • Chick-fil-A on Park Boulevard • Seminole Gardens • Blowfish Bar and Grill • Lake Seminole Presbyterian Church • Central Pinellas Republican Club • Seminole Elementary School • Realty Executives Adamo & Associates • Sign of the Dolphin • Screwie Louies Porpoise Pub • Centratel • Yoga4All
