Marion County is once again encouraging citizens and businesses to help those in greater need by participating in the annual “Bring the Harvest Home” campaign.
"It's the holiday season again and our community, as always, gets the chance to step up to make a difference." said Kathy Bryant, Chairman of the Marion County Commission. "This annual food drive shows our community at its best, stepping up to help our neighbors in need."
The effort to collect canned food and toiletry donations will culminate on Friday, Dec. 7, with a Holiday Food Drive from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the Square in downtown Ocala. Donated goods will help fill area pantries.
