"We are an independent community food pantry governed by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from local businesses and residents who care about our mission. We provide food and other necessary items directly to the people who need assistance in Lake County, Florida. We could not do what we do without the support of a generous community and guidance of the Second Harvest Food Bank, who primarily acts as the storehouse for millions of pounds of food and other products distributed to Central Florida food pantries."

A letter to Triangle Connection from the Executive Director of Lake Cares:

The reason I'm writing today is to thank The Triangle Connection for supporting our cause.  I know that your membership has been donating canned goods and other items on a monthly basis for several years now, and you deserve to be recognized for that.
Please pass on my appreciation to all the fine people in your organization.  Let them know that the recipients of their generosity are really thankful for what your members are doing.
Lake Cares is fortunate to be staffed by more than 175 dedicated volunteers.  And, because of actions taken by groups such as yours, we were able to provide much needed food in 2017 to 36,201 children and adults in 10,695 families*.  With your continued support, there's no doubt we will exceed those numbers this year.
I urge you to keep up the spirit of giving.  Needy people in Lake County depend on the goodness of kind-hearted individuals such as the folks in The Triangle Connection.  You are making a difference.
Once again, thank you very much for what you've accomplished thus far and for all your future efforts.
Irene O'Malley
Executive Director
