Orlando Briefs

Statement from FAMU Law Dean Deidré A. Keller, Esq.
The U.S. Postal Service in Central Florida will be hiring over 1,000 employees for the 2020 Holiday Season.
To kick off September, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida received some big support from Publix to continue with hunger relief efforts amid the coronavirus pandemic. Publix Super Markets Charities presented Second Harvest with a check for $225,000 to assist the food bank’s ongoing COVID-19 response efforts.
In a major announcement from Opera Orlando, Frank J. and Mary Doherty have pledged a $30,000 match in celebration of the Company’s fifth season.
Goodwill Industries of Central Florida will host a free webinar series for local job seekers on August 28th.
Money will be used to purchase electric buses to operate in downtown Orlando.
As COVID-19 drives food insecurity in Central Florida, the funding will allow Second Harvest to sustain its emergency response.
Orlando will again be the recipient of a major terror-prevention and preparedness grant under the Department of Homeland Security’s Urban Area Security Initiative.
The program supports the commitment to serve the entire community.
