Meals on Wheels of Sarasota's Community Gift Drive

SCOOP

BY SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY OCT 21, 2017

The holiday season is one of the most special times of the year where family and friends unite for dinner, fun and festivities. However, for hundreds of seniors in Sarasota, often alone with no nearby family, it can be just the opposite. For them, there’s Meal on Wheels of Sarasota’s annual community gift drive. From now through Saturday December 9, Meals on Wheels of Sarasota is accepting unwrapped items to distribute to more than 600 homebound seniors, veterans and the handicapped. The desired gifts, ranging from blankets to scarves to writing pads have been selected by their customers during surveys circulated in September and October. Unwrapped items may be dropped off weekdays (9am to 4pm) or Saturday mornings until noon at the charity’s office at 421 Lime Avenue, Sarasota. Only new items are being accepted for the children and adults who receive nourishing meals through Meals on Wheels’ daily meal delivery program. Gifts will be delivered December 20 and 21.
