A.V.A Live Radio Reaches Out to Gateway Community Outreach /Feed The Children

I had the good fortune of being asked to go cover an event at Westside Park in Deerfield Beach that took place on Wednesday, August 29. This charity event was sponsored by Gateway Community Outreach in conjunction with teleperformance call centers for “Feed The Children” Foundation. They were there to distribute 400 packages to local residents of Deerfield Beach. The day started at 8 AM as the semi tractor-trailer rolls up to unload the pallets of food, water and hygiene products assisted by a local business Deerfield Building Supply owned by Ed Dietrich. Then the 40+ volunteers went into action where they were there to hand out food to the families lucky enough to receive a voucher. This went on until 2 o’clock in the afternoon.
The timing could not have been better as there was a pending tropical storm Isaac threatening South Florida. The winds were already starting to pick up as I made my way to the interview. I got to speak with Pres. and CEO of Gateway Community Outreach Ms. Carol Ray and former Cincinnati Bengals football player Michael Basnight as they give us insight into what their organization does for the community. Also we got to speak with Deerfield Commissioner District 2 Mr. Ben Preston about his community and how this affects them.
It was another successful day for Gateway Community Outreach and if you wish to help out this organization either with a cash donation or to volunteer contact Carol Ray at http://www.gcoflorida.org your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
