BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott and her staff proudly presented a $3,022.50 check yesterday to United Way/Project Hunger for the Feed & Read summer program.
The check represents donations received from Scott’s 10th Annual Vote to End Childhood Hunger Bake Sale & Raffle which was held in May.
“As a mother, I am very passionate about helping children in need,” said Scott.
“We are honored this money will make a difference in the lives of children in our community.”

This year’s raffle included 8 themed gift baskets and a 50/50 raffle. Additionally, Supervisor Scott’s office has the 5th edition of the Election Office cookbook available by donation.
This year’s cookbook is titled “Generations of Love” and is dedicated to Scott’s mother who recently passed away.
