In April 2009 concerned residents met to address the needs of the F.A.I.T.H. Neighborhood Center in Groveland and how Kings Ridge could help in an on-going manner. Each neighborhood was represented and each selected a month to be responsible for collecting donated goods from the residents and delivering them to the Center. It was decided the donation bin location would be in the clubhouse by the Lifestyle Desk. Sterling Robinson created our acronym: Kings Ridge gives... So Others May Eat.
Nancy Karmann served this community with leadership and coordination within the fifteen neighborhoods to collect and deliver donations to the FNC during the first five years of this program. S.O.M.E. is now under the leadership of Nancy Kieft, Sussex resident and longtime volunteer at the FNC. The F.A.I.T.H. Neighborhood Center in Groveland services all of South Lake County with free food, clothing, and household items. When possible, the Center provides financial assistance towards rent, utilities and medical expenses.
The Center also has ongoing projects throughout the year such as the Annual Scholarship Luncheon to raise money for scholarships to pursue training and further education. The newest project is the Building Fund. The current landlord does not plan to renew the Center’s lease so they are seeking funds to build their own building on property across the street from their current location. Donations for this purpose should be labeled “Building Fund.” For more information about the Center, please visit www.faithneighborhoodcenter.com
CONTINUING NEEDS AT THE FAITH NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER FOOD PANTRY ARE PEANUT BUTTER, PASTA, RICE, CEREAL, CANNED MEATS AND CANNED FRUIT.
You may help by donating canned and dry goods, writing a check, or volunteering your time. Checks can be mailed to F.A.I.T.H. Neighborhood Center, P.O. Box 120075, Clermont, FL 34712
