Citizens Benefit by Giving Locally
Supporting Hunger Relief. As the only food bank in Marianna, Delta Dream Food Pantry knows how to stretch dollars when times are tough and funds are low. “Around the holidays the food pantry always has such a heavy demand,” explained Lucy Smith, executive director of the Community Foundation of Lee County. Lee County residents and the foundation rose to the challenge and provided funds not only for Delta Dream Food Pantry but also for the Backpack Program, Coats for Kids, and Toys For Tots.
Investing in Community Events. Living day to day in a rural Delta community our citizens see the needs in our community and give generously back to its citizens. The county has an opportunity to gather together twice a year for Arts in the Park and Autumn on the Square. Both festivals are great ways for our foundation to bring family and friends together to enjoy our downtown square.
