This past Saturday, August 10, Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado participated on the “Speed to Feed” event held at Campbell Drive K-8 Center. The event organized by the Chrome Knights Motorcycle Association who raised $95,000 dollars prior to the event along with Christ Fellowship Church, benefited Miami-Dade County’s low-income children who often go hungry. Due to Councilman Maldonado’s efforts in reaching out to other City of Homestead schools, underprivileged children from all over Homestead receive backpacks with school supplies and food. Children and their families were also able to enjoy a fun free event with music, food, vendors, stunt fighters and show bikes.
“I am so proud of Chrome Knights Motorcycle Association and Christ Fellowship Church and all that they continue to do for children who unfortunately go hungry every day,” said Councilman Maldonado, Liaison to the Homestead Education Committee. “This year has been a difficult time for some families and their children, and organizations like these should be applauded for the work they do every day to provide for needy and hungry children throughout our area.”
