Courtesy photo -- As a community service project, South Florida State College’s (SFSC) Hardee Campus Panther Ambassadors recently raised nearly $200 to purchase ten turkeys for their annual Thanksgiving food drive. The turkeys were donated to the Hardee Help Center and will go to needy families in Hardee County. The Hardee Campus Panther Ambassadors, a student organization, provides SFSC’s Hardee Campus students with an opportunity for community outreach and service, as well as an avenue of communication with the rest of the campuses.Pictured from left: Victoria Maldonado, customer service rep., Hardee Help Center; Erika Pascual; Michael Ramirez; Cha Lor; Tiffanie Green; Andrew Melendez; and Fernando Islas, advisor, Hardee Ambassadors.
