Veterans Committee and volunteers host Food Drive to aid Coast Guard
Miami Lakes Veterans Affairs Committee, joined by Town officials Vice Mayor Nelson Rodriguez and Councilmember Marilyn Ruano, and members of Giving Gators, held a successful Canned Food Drive hosted by Miami Lakes Auto Mall to benefit Coast Guard members and their families posted at the Air Station at Opa-locka Airport. The canned/dry foods and other items were delivered to help relieve the pressure of no pay for the Coast Guard during the recent 35-day government shutdown. The Coast Guard is part of Homeland Security which was included in the shutdown period.
