NORTH VENICE - Ajax Paving Industries of Florida LLC has kicked off its second annual “Fill that Truck” Food Drive, with three locations collecting donations for local food pantries.
Last year’s drive resulted in more than 22,000 pounds of food being donated.
Donations collected at the North Venice office, at One Ajax Drive, will be given to the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition.
Nonperishable food items can be placed in the yellow barrels at the Ajax Venice, Tampa (7860 Professional Place, Temple Terrace) and Fort Myers (13350 Rickenbacker Parkway) locations or ordered via Amazon for shipping to the office of choice.
Needed food items include cake mixes, canned goods, boxed pasta meals and peanut butter.
Monetary donations may be made by check. Put “Food drive” and the office to receive the donation in the memo line and mail the check to the Venice location.
The food drive runs through Nov. 10, with the area making the most donations being named “Turkey Champions.”
