    1. FAITH Neighborhood Center Grand Opening
      10:00 am – 11:00 am

      The FAITH (Feed And Instruct The Hungry) Neighborhood Center (FNC) opened the doors of its new operating location on the first business day of 2017 at 14727 Timber Village Road, Groveland, FL. Since then, it has been all business.
      The FNC Board of Directors and the FNC staff announced a Grand Opening ceremony at 10:00am on February 23. They are anxious to show off the facility to the community, local leaders, and the donors who were key in making the new center a reality.
      The increased operating space from 2,500 to 6,000 sq. ft. has provided a user-friendlier operating environment for both clients and staff. The modern, open, store-like feel of the center has been well received by clients.
      The center staff have been very busy putting finishing touches on the center as they make it their home as well as developing new operating procedures to improve service delivery and make the most of the new operating space.
      The numbers for January 2017 tell the story of the center’s potential when compared with those of January 2016. For example, the number of families helped in January surged from 435 to 754; the amount of food disbursed climbed dramatically from 29,574 pounds to over 49,200 pounds.
      Volunteers are vital to the FNC. The come to center for a variety of reasons. The FNC is organizing volunteer drives to be able to support the increased number of clients. The center is very proud their volunteer operating model has helped to keep overhead operating costs low, so that they can get more bang for each donated dollar. Volunteers are involved in almost every facet of center operations.
      The FNC is proud of the dedicated training space at its new location. They plan to offer training programs in areas such as budgeting, computer training, effective job searching, English as a second language, good nutrition, and healthy habits.  They intend to leverage their volunteer pool to implement these programs.
      The center has developed a fundraising theme called the “Power of 10”. Ten dollars can feed a family of four three meals a day for four days. In order to do so, the center’s operations staff make sure they work closely with key stakeholders like Second Harvest, The United Way, and the Community Foundation of South Lake to make sure the center gets most out every operating dollar.
      The FNC is looking forward to an exciting year ahead. If you want to learn more about the FAITH Neighborhood Center, whether it is to volunteer, to donate, or how to access their services go to www.faithneighborhoodcenter.com or call 352-429-1200.
