Hilton Daytona Beach Team Volunteers with Halifax Urban Ministries to Feed Volusia

Food Distribution Event to Help Volusia County Families in Need 


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 10, 2020) - Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort team donates their time to help pack grocery bags at Halifax Urban Ministries (HUM) Food Distribution Event. HUM is coordinating the weekly events at the Ocean Center complex to assist families in response to the Covid-19 crisis. 

"It's amazing what can be accomplished when a group of people come together to meet needs in the community. We are so thankful for the participation of Hilton staff to help us make grocery bags for distribution in Volusia County," said Buck James, Executive Director of the Halifax Urban Ministries. 

Each week HUM staff and 40 to 50 community volunteers make 1700 grocery bags fitted with essentials such as bread, fruit, and canned goods for Volusia County families. After the bags are loaded they are distributed via trucks to partner agencies all over the county. Since its commencement on September 19, 2020, HUM has distributed over 5,000 grocery bags ensuring families had one less thing to worry about during the pandemic. 

HUM is still seeking additional volunteers to enlist for the coming weeks. Volunteers meet at the Ocean Center, located at 101 N Atlantic Ave., Daytona Beach, FL 32118, at 2:00 p.m. every Tuesday to help fill the bags. Volunteer time is one to two hours and all attendees must wear masks and gloves to assist. To volunteer or for more information, visit https://uwvfc.galaxydigital.com/need/detail/?need_id=521511.
