     The Broward League of Cities, a non-profit organization representing Broward County’s 31 municipal governments and more than 80 associate members, recently hosted a service project at the First Baptist Church and Christian Education Center in Pompano Beach.

To combat hunger in the community and aid the church’s food pantry clients, volunteers collected food donations, created food boxes, built a picnic table, planted a garden of fresh vegetables, and revitalized the church property.

The service project was the second in a series of community events organized by Broward League of Cities President and Fort Lauderdale Commissioner Bobby DuBose through his “Together We Serve” volunteer initiative.

Earlier this year, the League aided hungry children throughout the community by volunteering at Feeding South Florida, and on May 11, the organization will host a service project that will benefit military members and their families.

“Volunteering is an essential component of bettering our community,” DuBose said. “Each successful “Together We Serve” volunteer project is a testament to the unity of Broward County and the dedication of our residents to rally together for the common good.”

Chartered in 1957, the Broward League of Cities is a non-partisan, non-profit organization representing the 31 municipal governments and more than 80 associate government, non-profit and business organizations within Broward County.

The organization is dedicated to increasing awareness and providing resolutions to issues that affect day-to-day operations at the county, state, and federal levels.
