Two initiatives led by Black men in Orlando have garnered support, providing hundreds of families in need with essential Thanksgiving meals.
In a remarkable display of community spirit, two initiatives led by Black men in Orlando last week have garnered significant support, providing Thanksgiving meals to hundreds of families in need.
Murray expressed gratitude for the community’s overwhelming response. “My dad loved where he was from. Nothing could keep him from Compton. Nothing could keep his parents from Compton. This will forever be a highlight in my life.” Murray’s dedication to community service reflects his commitment to making a positive impact, especially during the holiday season.
Volunteer Shantavia Lawrence remarked, “People all have needs. It’s just amazing to see that it doesn’t matter your lifestyle or how you present yourself, you just never know who needs something.”
With the holiday season approaching, these initiatives underscore the importance of community support and the collective effort to ensure that everyone can enjoy a Thanksgiving meal. As the spirit of giving continues, additional food drives are planned in the Orlando area, including one in DeLand on Nov. 21, and two more scheduled for Nov. 25 in Deltona and East Orange County.
