SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY NOV 27, 2019

On Saturday, December 7, from 8:30 am-noon, organizations including Goodwill Manasota, SRQ Vets, Vets 2 Success, and VFW 3233 are holding a Christmas Toy Drive & Breakfast at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3233 (124 S. Tuttle Ave., Sarasota). The organizations are remembering the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor while working together to make a brighter day for veterans and families in need. The public is invited to attend the event, which will feature delicious food – sponsored by Detwiler’s Farm Market – including an omelet bar, home fries, sausage and bacon, a yogurt/oatmeal bar, fresh bread, and beverages. A new, unwrapped toy for a child or a $10 donation gets one plate of breakfast. All financial donations will be split between the four presenting organizations and go to their relief funds for veterans in need; all toys will be distributed by Toys-for-Tots. For more information, call Goodwill’s Veterans Services Program office at 941-355-2721, ext. 451.
