Christian Social Services


Christian Social Services

CSS is a specialized ministry of local churches which offers food, clothing, supportive services and Christian hospitality in the name of Jesus Christ in central Pasco and north Hillsborough counties.

In the winter of 1985, pastors and lay people from Lutz and Land O' Lakes churches followed God's leading and worked together to establish an organization that would provide food, clothing and related services for disadvantaged men, women and children in our local area, Christian Social Services (CSS) opened its doors in August 1987, and serves families and individuals in central Pasco and northern Hillsborough counties

Lutz/Land O Lakes American Legion Post 108

Post 108

Although a new incarnation, Lutz/Land O Lakes American Legion Post 108 is actually anything but new!  A group of WW1 Veterans got together in the mid-1930's and decided this area needed an American Legion Post. The most recent Legion Hall was damaged by a storm several years ago. That,  plus the widening of U.S. 41, made us look alternate locations and we have landed at Harvester.  But it has not slowed us down!

We meet the 2nd Saturday of each month at 9:00 AM.. It would be a privilege and an honor to welcome new members. Currently, Bill Garrison is the Immediate Past Commander for Post 108 and looks forward to meeting all of you. 

For more information please contact Bill at or call Randy Holeyfield at 813-716-0318.
