Meals on Wheels receives holiday donation and AAA provided giveaways for the final car show of 2017.
Meals on Wheels receives holiday donation
Unity in the Community presented a $30,000 check to Meals on Wheels on Dec. 11. Meals on Wheels feeds 45-50 families in need a day and relies solely on sponsors and donations. Families are fed on an income-based level. Some pay $20 or $10 a month and others eat for free based on the what they can afford.
The group is in need of volunteer drivers and George Newman, president of Meals on Wheels, said everyone in the organization is a volunteer and the entire budget goes toward its services. The group started in 1990 and has run off of the support from the community. Newman said Unity in the Community is its biggest donor.
AAA receives warm Plant City welcome
The Plant City Chamber of Commerce partnered with AAA for the final Strawberry Classic Cruise-In of 2017. AAA offered free collectible event hats to the first 250 drivers registered at the event and passed out sling pack goodie bags to all attendees.
There were also commemorative dashboard plaques for all cars and AAA offered a Royal Caribbean cruise giveaway.
