Fill the Gazebo is an annual Livingston County community-wide food and fund drive that began in 2003. Over the years, many Livingston residents, businesses, civic groups, places of worship, and other organizations have participated in this community drive. The Livingston County Association of REALTORS® has organized the drive for 12 years in partnership with Gleaners Community Food Bank.
