To all those standing in the unemployment, welfare and free food lines: keep voting for Democrats and you will always have a secure spot in line demanding others to take care of you and your family.
LITTLE HAVANA (CBSMiami) – Some people were in line for hours or even days, but no matter how long they waited, as long as they had a voucher, they received bags of holiday cheer Wednesday from the Latin American Chamber of Commerce.
Wednesday was the Chambers’ annual holiday food basket giveaway in Little Havana. Just like previous years, hundreds of people camped out outside the CAMACOL building, located at 1401 West Flagler Street, in order to be some of the first to receive the free food.
Zoraida Pacheco said she and her husband were laid off this year and are scraping by doing odd jobs. For the first time ever, she came to wait in line for a holiday meal for her five kids.
“Once you’ve been up there and you have everything for yourself, then comes a point that you’re down here,” Pacheco said, “that you have to depend on other people, so other people can help you. This helps a great deal.”
The Latin Chamber of Commerce and various local businessesgave away $150 dollars worth of food and drinks to every person with a voucher. Three thousand vouchers were handed out several weeks ago.
