Help Camp Fire Build United…

CAMP FIRE (1)United Way of Central Florida is hosting a contest to see which participating organization in Polk, Hardee or Highlands County can collect much needed food for our local food banks and pantries, as well as build the most creative and visually captivating sculpture out of donated non-perishable food. BUILD UNITED!

Publix Super Markets Charities will donate $1 for every can collected, up to $50,000.These funds will be invested in Financial Education classes at a few of the organizations where families will be picking up food. These classes can make the difference of whether a family or individual needs to return to a food pantry or not.
