FAMU DRS Community Partners Donate to FAMU DRS Food Pantry

The FAMU DRS Food Pantry has been filled with over 1,680 pounds of food, which includes noodles, assorted lentils and beans and other non-perishable items thanks to donations from FAMU DRS Community Partners, Tim Mosley and Tallahassee’s own Radio Celebrity DJ Dapp, Program Director of WWLD Blazin 102.3. Mosley and DJ Dapp joined forces to assist FAMU DRS students and parents who are in need of a helping hand throughout the school year.
