How are The Eustis Middle School Mustangs Giving Back To There Community This Holiday Season?

     This is Seanna Pickens and she responded for Community Service during November. Seanna spent her time at Deliver the Difference located on Kurt Street.

Deliver The Difference provided Thanksgiving meals for over 1,000 of our residents.  

     Right now there are over 2500 homeless children right here in Lake County. There are thousands of families in this area who will not experience the joy and comfort of a holiday meal. Sure, they're grateful for the things that really matter, as we all are, like health and close friends and family. But we all know what it can mean to be able to sit down together and share a meal and fellowship with those we love.

     The entire month of December The Eustis Middle School Mustang Band is having there own food can drive. Collecting any non-perishables. Especially canned fruit and vegetables. Decembers food drive will all be donated to Hearts and Hands who's mission is to provide food to eligible families, the first and third Friday of every month at various locations. They are located at 231 N. Grove Street. Eustis FL 32727, 352-589-4011. After Thanksgiving the shelves are pretty empty and it takes a good amount of time and donations to fill these shelves up. That is why our 160 students are opening their hearts and hands for this food drive. They will even have a food bin at their community Yardsale Fundraiser Benefit located at The First Baptist Church of Eustis on Saturday December 7, 2013 for any donations the public would like to make.

     Children of the band will be responsible for coordination, organization and delivery of these items. Proving that the band program has some of the best role models who are willing to give their time not just to practicing their music and school work but also giving themselves to the community they live in. 

      If you have any questions or comments regarding this community action or our band program please contact Cherrice Purvee Eustis Mustang Music Association President at Or Mr. Ricke our director
