Neighborhood Food Drops

Over the past few months, Florida Citrus Sports, the West Lakes Partnership, Lift Orlando, Second Harvest Food Bank and the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation have teamed up to host a series of emergency food drops for residents of the West Lakes Communities surrounding Camping World Stadium.

Approximately 300 -700 families have been served at each food drop and, in total, over 123,000 pounds of food and other critical resources have been distributed to date.

Thank you to everyone who came out and volunteered their time. A special thanks to our partners at Little Caesars, who donated pizzas for our volunteers who were out providing food to families in need at the food drop.

Community Drive-In: Remember The Titans

On Friday Oct. 2, Florida Citrus Sports, our neighbors and community leaders gathered at Camping World Stadium for a pop-up drive-in movie showing of Remember the Titans.

Though 2020 has been a unique and difficult year, the beginning of football season was an opportunity to rally together. FCS believes in the power of sports to unite neighbors and create lasting social change. Disney’s 2000 family film Remember The Titans, based on the true story of the 1971 T. C. Williams High School football team, is a great example of that power.

The event took place on historic Tinker Field at Camping World Stadium. The local baseball diamond was also once the host to Jackie Robinson as well as a 1964 speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Florida Citrus Sports board member Justin Kinsey and CEO Steve Hogan spoke to media about how an idea turned into the “Better Together” Community Drive-In event.

What if a stadium could really revitalize a neighborhood?

Inspired by the history and pride of the people who live in the shadow of the Camping World Stadium, Florida Citrus Sports has teamed with local business leaders to create LIFT Orlando, a research-driven organization whose goal is to ensure a lasting legacy for the residents and the region.

Implementing proven practices and investment strategies, LIFT Orlando seeks to build upon the strengths the people who call this area home and who have helped it become a proud and integral part of the city’s history. With your help, we will ensure our neighborhood continues to thrive and the investment in our stadium truly lifts all who visit and all who live alongside it.
