Volunteer Way Receives $80,000 Refrigerator

It is nice to report good news once in a while. Pasco County's Volunteer Way received an $80,000 refrigerator thanks to the efforts of Florida state Sen. Mike Fasano.

The new truck can carry close to 30,000 pounds of produce and other perishable staples, or about double the amount the other truck can hold, Cypher said. "Yet another dream of Lester's that comes true," Fasano said with a smile about the truck.

The food will go to help feed the needy in Pasco County. The money for the refrigerator came from private donations Fasano collected. Other nonprofit organizations receiving donations.

The Good Samaritan Health Clinic got $10,000 to help pay the salary of the nurse practitioner who provides expanded health services in Pasco.

The Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Foundation received $10,000 to help fund the database to discourage prescription pill abuse.

SmileFaith Foundation got $2,000 to help provide oral health care to those in need. "We are pleased to play a small part in advancing the cause of each charitable organization," Fasano said.

Fasano deserves thanks for the great work he did for Pasco County.
