Time for Giving in Lake Worth: Employee Food Drive, Bike Give-Away, and Other Ways Too

This information is from the latest City Newsletter, Worth Noting. To sign up for the newsletter use this link. Here is the news on the employee food drive:
Total Collected by Lake Worth employees: 503 pounds. Recipients of the collected food were the food pantries of 1st Congregational Church in District 2 and New Hope Missionary Baptist Church and New Life Zion Temple in District 1.
And about the bike give-away:
     As part of the Holiday Parade and Santa’s Workshop held each year, the City of Lake Worth “raffles off” new bicycles. The first 300 kids that attend the event receive a FREE raffle ticket. Last year, fifty (50) bicycles were raffled thanks to local businesses, sponsors, and donations. The Leisure Services Department would like to exceed last year’s number by raffling even more bikes this year. The target goal – 100 BRAND NEW BIKES!
     Time is short – the 50th Annual Parade & Santa’s Workshop is on Saturday, December 12th. If you would like to contribute a new bike or money towards the purchase of a bike, please contact the Leisure Services Department at 561.533.7363. Checks should be made payable to City of Lake Worth.
See you at the parade!
