Meals on Wheels of Tampa to Deliver Hurricane Preparedness Packs Saturday Morning
Many of MOWTampa's recipients are homebound and/or elderly. With the simple act of knocking on someone's door, MOWTampa is providing daily safety checks in addition to a meal. With the hurricane packs, MOWTampa is able to provide a little more safety in the event a storm hits again this year. Hurricane Irma caused a disruption in the meal delivery service for almost a week last year.
MOWTampa is a privately funded non-profit organization that was founded in Tampa in 1975. Hurricane Preparedness Packs are being made possible this year through partnerships with BB&T, Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation, Nestle Waters North America, Bay Area Legal Services, Mobile Physician Services, SafePoint Insurance, donations received during Give Day Tampa Bay and funds raised at the Inaugural Meals On Wheels of Tampa 5K & Fun Run presented by the High School Leadership Board earlier this year.
