The check represents donations received from Supervisor Scott’s 10th Annual Vote to End Childhood Hunger Bake Sale & Raffle which was held on May 21.
“As a mother, I am very passionate about helping children in need,” said Supervisor Scott. “We are honored this money will make a difference in the lives of children in our community.” Over the past 10 years, Supervisor Scott’s office has donated over $29,000.
This year’s raffle included 8 themed gift baskets and a 50/50 raffle. Additionally, Supervisor Scott’s office has the 5th edition of the Election Office cookbook available by donation. This year’s cookbook is titled “Generations of Love” and is dedicated to Supervisor Scott’s mother who recently passed away.
Project Hunger provides access to proper nutrition over the summer months for children that receive free or reduced-priced lunches during the school year. This program also provides one-on-one reading mentors and distributes new books to children throughout Brevard County.
Robert Rains, President of the United Way of Brevard, and Project Hunger Committee members: Dick Beagley, Delores Spearman and Darcia Jones Francey were present for today’s check presentation.
