Meals of Hope: 500 volunteers needed

By Coastal Breeze News Staff

This Saturday, November 17, local charities are coming together with the goal of packaging 150,000 meals to feed local needy families. Volunteers of all ages are needed and welcomed for a short time commitment, 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM at the Marco Island Charter Middle School. This is an especially good volunteer activity for school-aged children.

Each year, Meals of Hope seeks to outperform the previous year’s record, making the pace of the event fast and fun. The event is a collaboration of the Marco Island Sunrise Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club and Noontime Rotary Club. A series of fundraising events this fall generated the funds to purchase the meals, which now need to be packaged for distribution. A drawing for the winner of the 50/50 raffle tickets that were sold at each event will also take place. The prize is expected to be $5,000.
