Patch is stepping up its effort to get folks t o, which serves Sarasota County food banks and ones throughout the region.

We're bringing in a 31-foot Patch RV to events throughout Sarasota where you can donate canned goods, and for doing so, we're giving away some awesome prizes in our raffles. (By the way, we're still putting the finishing touches on this monster. The RV pictured is similar but smaller.)
