Our Christmas gift donations given to The Christmas Dream Machine, in the Lake City Mall.
Our food collections donated to the Suwannee Valley Food Bank.
Nation of Stangs Car Club held a Toy and Food Drive in the front parking lot of the Lake City Mall on November 19, 2011. The collected toys were given to the Christmas Dream Machine of Lake City, and the collected food benefited the Suwannee Valley Food Bank. Our event was publicized on the mall’s bright flashing reader board, the local newspaper and two local radio stations. The goal was to help boost collection of items during the busy Christmas season by setting up a convenient drive-through for the public to bring donated items. The club displayed their cars and our new banners hoping to attract more donations. Club members also brought their own donations of food and or toys.
Mrs Meally Jenkins of the Christmas Dream Machine took time from her busy duties to come out and thank NOS personally. She sincerely appreciated NOS’ efforts and gladly accepted our collected items at the end of the day. Food collections were taken to the Suwannee Valley Food bank the next day and thankfully accepted by staff members there.
