Shoeboxes filled with gifts given to Manatee County seniors

Bradenton, Florida - Manatee County seniors are getting some special gifts thanks to Meals on Wheels PLUS and you.

For more than three decades, Meals on Wheels PLUS has collected wrapped shoeboxes filled with goodies for area seniors. Most are homebound and alone and may not otherwise have a gift to open at all during the holidays. 

“It is truly meaningful to watch a senior client’s eyes light up as they receive their shoebox. They are sincerely grateful, and it makes the spirit of giving come to life. Join us for the Shoebox Drive Reception and know that your contribution will help to make the holiday season bright for a local senior in need,” says Maribeth Phillips, CEO of Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee.

People in the community fill the shoeboxes and then they are given to area seniors.  

If you'd like to volunteer or make a donation, call 941-749-0100.
