This Sunday, January 31, will be the fourth annual Ibis Charities Care and Share Food Drive. The premier West Palm Beach Country Club, Ibis Golf and Country Club, offers some of the top golf and country club real estate in southern Florida. This local event of good will and generosity has become the largest food drive of any community in Palm Beach County, according to the Palm Beach County Food Bank.
This year’s Ibis Charities Care and Share Food Drive is sure to make an impact! Over the past three years, the food drive has brought in over 51,000 pounds of food and almost $25,000 just from resident’s donations and hard work. All of the food and money raised at the event is given to the Palm Beach County Food Bank as well as the Grove Park Elementary School. 75% of the contributions go to the Palm Beach County Food Bank and 25% go to the Grove Park Elementary School. Many of the students who attend Grove Park Elementary School live at or below the poverty level.
The Ibis Charities Care and Share Food Drive will have more than 150 volunteers this year. “The volunteers will be going to almost 1,800 homes to collect the 5,000 bags donated by Whole Foods,” said food drive co-chair, Hal Gottschall.
