SEMINOLE - So far, Seminole Mayor Leslie Waters’ yearlong food drive has been a great success, she said.

Her goal is to collect 18,739 items – that represents one item per Seminole resident – by the end of the year. All the food collected will go to the Interfaith Food Pantry. The food drive recently got a boost thanks to a $500 donation and $1,000 from the new Bay Pines Walmart.

“Hundreds of cans and generous contributions are rolling in from east, west, south and north parts of Seminole,” Waters said. “Our local grocers are helping, local business establishments are involved, Chamber members are challenging each other, and schools and churches have taken on this great opportunity to demonstrate Seminole city pride and generosity.”

• Seminole City Hall
• Seminole-SPC Library
