Tarpon Springs

Needy families helped by program

Florida Hospital North Pinellas partnered with the Tarpon Springs Shepherd Center in a program called Project Thanks, which provides a basket of food at Thanksgiving and Christmas to households in need in the community that register with the center each season. The holiday meals serve more than 1,000 households annually. This year's Thanksgiving Project Thanks was made up of more than 800 cans of green beans donated by Florida Hospital North Pinellas employees, family and friends. Additionally, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral donated enough rice to feed 600 families, and Tarpon Springs High School donated just as much corn to complete the Thanksgiving bags. To learn more about how to help the Shepherd Center during the Christmas season, go to or call (727) 939-1400.
