IZEACares continues to support our community through partnering with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida this month.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida
Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a private, nonprofit organization that collects, stores and distributes food donations across Central Florida. With the support of volunteers, donors and the community, the organization was able to distribute 52 million meals last year alone! They have a tremendous impact on our community, and IZEA was grateful to have the opportunity to spend time supporting Second Harvest.

If you are unable to volunteer in-person this holiday season, another great way to give back would be to purchase an IZEA holiday t-shirt. All profits will go to two great organizations: Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and Baby DJ!
