Colts give away food boxes
The Plant City Colts may not be playing football this season, but they’re still making their presence felt in the community.
On Oct. 17 and 24, members of the Colts organization donated dozens of boxes full of food to local families in need. The Colts now plan to host monthly food giveaways.
“Even though we have taken a season off due to the circumstances, we are still going to be out in the community doing fundraisers, giving back to the community and just trying to stay connected with everyone in the community,” cheer coordinator Shaniqua Abdullah said.
