On December 13, Goodwill Manasota, in partnership with the Gail Baird Foundation, hosted a festive holiday lunch for more than 50 homeless veterans from Sarasota and Manatee counties. Jennifer Steube, wife of incoming State Senator Greg Steube, welcomed the veterans to the celebration which included a delicious lunch of hot turkey and fixings, gifts and educational information about housing, employment opportunities and area food banks. The Baird Foundation contributed cozy fleece jackets for all veterans in attendance along with Patriot Shoeboxes, which included a wide variety of toiletries, health items as well as non-perishable food items donated by Goodwill Ambassadors and members of the community.
