The 2018 Giving Challenge held in May was an enormous success. Thank you to everyone who gave during the challenge.
A special thanks to the Patterson Foundation for matching the donations, and to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County for sponsoring the event.
In May, the employees of Manatee Memorial and Lakewood Ranch Hospitals collected boxes of cereal to donate to The St. Joseph Food Pantry. At the end of the month they presented 1160 boxes to Pantry co-directors, Mike and Patti O'Driscoll. Hospital employees Frank and Dan delivered 3 truckloads to the Food Pantry. We are so grateful for the continued support of the employees of the Manatee Memorial Health System.
The 26th annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive exceeded our expectations.
We thank all our volunteers, drivers, and most especially the postal workers in our community for all their help in sorting, carrying, and picking up food for those in Manatee County that need our help!
