Rob Panepinto celebrating Three Kings Day with food distribution effort

Orange County mayoral candidate Rob Panepinto will participate Saturday in an effort to give away thousands of meals to families displaced by Puerto Rico, honoring Three Kings Day in Orlando.

Panepinto’s mayoral campaign is partnering with Feeding Children Everywhere and Clean the World. He’ll be working with more than 120 other volunteers to package 3,000 hygiene kits and 20,000 meals that will be distributed to families throughout Central Florida.

The effort will take place at the Clean the World Global Headquarters on Landstreet Road in Orlando.

Panepinto faces Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings, Orange County School Board Chairman Bill Sublette, and Orange County Commissioner Pete Clarke in the contest to succeed Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs.
