Shop with a Cop: Every year the Mount Dora Police Department works with counselors from the Mount Dora schools to determine children in need during the holidays. They shop with a police office at the Mount Dora Target store where they can purchase clothes and presents. Lake Cares makes sure that these families have food on their table by partnering with Target, Publix and the Mount Dora Police to feed their needs.
New Homeowners: Newly constructed homes built by the Habitat for Humanity receive food to stock the homeowner’s refrigerator and food pantry. Families have enough to think about when they finally move into a home, so Lake Cares makes sure they don’t have to think about having food to eat. Veterans moving into the Veterans Village in Umatilla are the next families to receive this help.
