VISTE's 26th Annual Thanksgiving
Meal Delivery

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2022

Join us for VISTE’s 26th Annual Thanksgiving Meal Delivery and help brighten the holidays for seniors in need! This family-friendly event is a local tradition and helps kick off the holiday season. There are numerous ways to participate and to help! Prior to the event we hold the Green Bean Snap and “Operation Cranberry.” In addition, local schoolchildren decorate meal bags and placemats, and others create craft items to share.

On the morning of the event, volunteers prep and pack Thanksgiving meals at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland. In the afternoon, hundreds of volunteer drivers pick up the meals, as well as a beautiful poinsettia and other treats (using convenient drive-through lanes) and deliver to grateful VISTE clients. Volunteer as a family, with friends, or with your colleagues!

THANK YOU to everyone who helps make this annual event a success, including volunteers, community and service groups, local businesses, and individual supporters – we couldn’t do it without YOU! Special thanks to our Thanksgiving event sponsors: GEICO Philanthropic Foundation, T. Mims Corp., and Mosaic.

Please note: All volunteers must pre-register to deliver meals. More details can be found throughout the current newsletter, on our website (www.viste.org), or by contacting Patty Johnson, Volunteer & Events Manager, at patty@viste.org or (863) 210-5593. Thank you!
