Woodbridge Donates Food Drive Prize Money

The Villas of Woodbridge took their generosity in the days after Thanksgiving a step farther.

At their December meeting, the HOA Board of the Villas of Woodbridge voted to donate the $250 block party award they won from WOW for being the most improved neighborhood in Westchase in the Nov. 19 Thanksgiving Food Drive. Instead of using the funds for a block party, the Villas of Woodbridge board members voted to donate the $250 to the New Seasons Apostolic Ministries Food Pantry of Seminole Heights in memory of Ronald Felton.

Felton was a volunteer at the food pantry and was fourth victim of the Seminole Heights shootings. Felton fell victim as he was walking to serve meals at the pantry on that fateful day.

“This was an extraordinarily generous thing to do,” said WOW Publisher Chris Barrett when he learned of the donation. “Everyone in Woodbridge should feel tremendously proud of how they continued to honor the spirit of the Thanksgiving Food Drive with this kind and selfless act.”
