Thanksgiving isn’t just about the turkey.
Largo-based community service organization Miracle by the Bay is accepting non-perishable food donations starting Monday, October 25 to be distributed to those in need at Thanksgiving.
The community service group specializes in serving special needs youth and adults, and provides Thanksgiving food distribution efforts annually.
This year, the organization is facing a hurdle after its partner, Feeding Tampa Bay, received notice of a grant loss for 2021.
“As a result of Covid-19, we were notified that feeding Tampa Bay was given a specialized grant to cover all food distributions of all community agency partners,” Miracle by the Bay released in an email. “Unfortunately, that has expired.”
Want to donate but not sure on the details?
Donate Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Miracle By the Bay’s office, 2200 Tall Pines Dr. Suite 124, Largo.
Here are some suggestions for what they need:
Canned tomatoes or tomato paste
100% fruit juice
Hand sanitizer / disinfectant wipes
