The Ruth and J O Stone Legacy Gift – Big Blue and RCS Pinellas

Big Blue carried fresh and frozen food to the needy of Clearwater for years, but finally gave out as the COVID-19 crisis hit. Thanks to the legacy gifts left by long-time Clearwater residents Ruth and J O Stone, RCS Pinellas was able to replace Big Blue. The new truck will bring fresh food to those who need it in Clearwater for years to come!

The Ruth and J O Stone Foundation at the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay continues the Stones’ generosity and love of their community even though they are no longer with us.

“It is an honor and a privilege to steward legacy gifts from donors such as the Stones,” said Marlene Spalten, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay. “We are committed to carrying on their desire to help their neighbors now and forever.”
