NORTH PORT — The Heron Creek Community Foundation completed its second food drive Saturday to benefit North Port High School’s needy and homeless students. Foundation volunteers collected an estimated 5,000 pounds of nonperishable food items donated by the residents of Heron Creek Golf & Country Club. Lowe’s and Sherwin-Williams provided boxes to transport the food to NPHS.
The Community Service Committee, part of the foundation, is responsible for determining the non-financial needs of the community and to organize activities to satisfy those needs. In this event, donors were requested to provide convenient, ready-to-eat food or other snack items on Saturday. The food was delivered to the high school to be distributed by its food pantry.
