Sandy Kennedy, the Tampa Bay End 68 Hours of Hunger pantry coordinator became aware that some of the children that walked home from school were having trouble getting their food home. One of the social workers suggested a pull along type grocery cart. She found one called the Rolling Fabric Fold Up Bag Cart sold by the Honey Can Do company. Sandy contacted the company and they sent them for 66% off! Thank you Honey Can Do Company for the great discount!
Also, the Tampa Bay Times published an article about local attorney Carol Jean LoCicero who helped start the Tampa Bay End 68 Hours of Hunger after watching a 60 Minutes story about local families who were evicted from their homes and were struggling to get the basics of food and shelter. Please read this Joe Henderson Commentary, Columns & Such column on how Tampa Bay’s chapter got started.
