Rain Or Shine: Cantonment Food Giveaways Continue

July 8, 2020

For four months now, the volunteers of the Cantonment Improvement Committee have distributed food weekly to those in need. And Tuesday was no different, despite a steady rain.

Hundreds upon hundreds of families have been served, including 276 in need last week.

The CIC accepts food donations each Monday at 3 p.m. for distribution at 3 p.m. Tuesdays at Carver Park, 208 Webb Street in Cantonment.

    If you are a company or have a significant size donation, send us an email to news@northescambia.com and we can connect you those involved.

    Thank you for this. There are so many in this community struggling who have no voice and no means to seek assistance. These are just terrible times and food is desperately needed. Thank you.

    Thank you for publishing this information. A company I work with helps donate and volunteer. Many hands especially helping the kids.
