In an effort to expand our support of the Boca Raton community and Boca Helping Hands, we have launched a month long food drive: FeedBoca 2011. The FeedBoca drive will run from December 1st through December 30th and donations will gladly be accepted at locations throughout the city.
"I am very proud to be expanding our relationship with Boca Helping Hands, a truly tremendous organization within our community. With the expansion of our traditional Movie Day Food Drive, we hope to create more of a city-wide focus on the fact that even in Boca Raton, there are a large number of residents in need."
Dr. Jennifer Statler, Owner - Statler Krumholtz Orthodontics
FeedBoca 2011 will be an effort lead by Statler-Krumholtz in close coordination with Boca Helping Hands (www.bocahelpinghands.org) When reached for comment on the program, Jim Gavrilos - Executive Director of BHH, offered the following:
"We are truly looking forward to working with Dr. Statler and staff again this year. The demand for services from Boca Helping Hands has simply skyrocketed in this last year. In an average month in 2010, BHH would distribute some 600-700 pantry bags of perishable and non-perishable groceries to local families. Today, our volunteers pass out over 3000 pantry bags each month. Every bag goes to a family with a story...and every donation helps!"
