Volunteers in Service to the Elderly (VISTE) is pleased to announce that the 24th Annual Thanksgiving Meal Delivery will take place on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, with meal pickup at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland. This event brings the community together to kick off the holiday season by distributing Thanksgiving meals and beautiful live plants to 1,800 of our elderly neighbors.
If you’ve participated in this event previously, please read carefully as there are significant changes this year, including limiting the number of people who pack meals, and using a drive-through car line for all delivery volunteers. Pick up will be between 2:00 – 5:00 pm, but this year you will not be getting out of your car!
In addition, this year we will NOT be holding the green bean snap or accepting baked bread donations due to safety concerns! However, we do have placemats to be decorated, or you can make seasonal greeting cards or festive craft items to include with the meals.
All volunteers MUST pre-register to deliver meals. If interested, please complete the registration form: https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?ap=115237630
Contact Julie to arrange pick-up of blank placemats. All items will need to be dropped off at VISTE by Monday, November 16th.
Thank you in advance for being flexible as we make necessary adjustments to help ensure the safety of our clients and volunteers. If you have any questions, please contact Julie McDonald at 863-284-0828 ext. 6 or [email protected]. Thank you!
