In early October, Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee was pleased to participate in the annual Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance #AllianceGivesBack volunteer events. On October 7th and 8th, members of LWRBA dedicated a few hours of their time by volunteering at Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee and The Food Bank of Manatee, one of our PLUS programs. Volunteers strengthened our community by working together and each selected our volunteer opportunities because of their own personal connection to our mission.
One volunteer who participated is on the board of the local Boys & Girls Club and many of those children receive meals from The Food Bank of Manatee. He witnessed the full circle of efforts dedicated to helping children in Manatee County. Another volunteer, when she was younger, would ride along with her grandmother as she delivered meals as part of the Meals on Wheels program. This personal connection is why she selected Meals on Wheels PLUS to dedicate her volunteer hours. Whatever your interests are, we have a fulfilling volunteer experience for you!
