Area Donors and Businesses Partner to Brighten Holidays for Bradenton Families

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING TUESDAY JAN 12, 2021

In late December, local philanthropists Joe and Janna Moran, financial planning firm The Otto Group at Hightower Advisors, and educational toys and school uniforms retail store Children’s World partnered to brighten the holidays for hundreds of Bradenton families. The idea for these events came from The Otto Group clients Joe and Janna Moran, who have been coming to our area for the past eight years and currently split their time between Asheville, North Carolina and Sarasota. Moran estimates that nearly 1,000 gifts were distributed to the children during the events in Manatee County thanks to the $26,000 in charitable dollars. “They taught us in school to look out for the least, the last and the lost,” Moran said. “If you’re fortunate to have something in life, be sure to pass it on.”
