Created September 11, 2018
On Tuesday, August 28, 2018 at 1:00AM an electrical short started a fire in the Community Food & Clothing pantries at the Bethlehem Baptist church in Lake Park, Florida. Founded and operated by Club 100 Charities in 2015, we are heartbroken to announce that the food pantry, clothing closet and all equipment were a total loss due to the fire.The food pantry currently has over 400 registered families who depend on the weekly supplemental food donations which consist of fresh vegetables, meats, fruits, canned goods as well as breads and food items. The pantry has distributed over 450,000 food items and 390,000 clothing and personal items to those in need. With the support of our 30-40 volunteers we will begin to rebuild the facility so we will once again be able to serve the community. Estimated losses are over $75,000 in refrigeration equipment, food, clothing and other items saved for distribution. There was no insurance to cover these items. If you would like to make in-kind donation, please contact Harry Drier, Club 100 Director.

Thank you for your contribution supporting the recovery efforts currently underway on the Club 100 Charities Food Pantry in Lake Park.

We have cleaned the interior walls, discarded all damaged equipment, food, and clothing.

We had to replace two of the older refrigerators as they did not withstand the heat as the newer units did.

Lastly we are up and partially running in our temporary facilities using PODS for temporary storage, fresh vegetables when available, and gift cards to partially make up for our lack of food to distribute.

We still have much to do, but the great effort continues thanks to our volunteers and generous donations like yours.
