Sunday Bird Droppings

Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRE

"This is one of several community initiatives that the Orioles are embarking on that we feel is incredibly important and that being meeting the food supply for Sarasota County—the deplete food supply—and being able to offer up the facility to make sure we can do all that we can during the holiday season," Williams said."
