As we all know… people in communities throughout the nation, including our own, are still struggling amid the coronavirus, and more than ever families and individuals are in need of a helping hand to get through these uncertain times.

Osceola REDI has begun its distribution of the first round of Food Pantry Grants totaling over $24,000. The grants have been distributed to seven different food pantries throughout Osceola County, to bring immediate and effective assistance during the continuing coronavirus pandemic including:

  • The Community Hope Center  
  • Solid Rock Church of God
  • Osceola Council on Aging
  • New Birth Church 
  • St. Cloud Food Pantry 
  • The Mercy Foundation  
  • Church and Community Assistance Program 

“We are grateful to the community coming together to assist Osceola REDI, so we can feed our community,” said Gene Terrico, Past Chairperson & Director of Osceola REDI. “We are still looking for partners to help us reach our goal of $100,000. We need the community’s continued support with the Osceola REDI Feeding Osceola Campaign by making a financial donation.”

Osceola County, in trying to meet the needs of those negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, has partnered with Osceola REDI, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a comprehensive and integrated emergency management assistance system.
