The Marco Island Meals of Hope annual packaging event will take place on November 16, 2019, at 8:30 AM at the Marco Island Charter Middle School.
The packaging event draws together over 500 volunteers as part of Team Hope, packaging over 200,000 meals for those in need. To volunteer as part of the packaging event, please visit www.mohmi.org and register. “Team Hope needs as many volunteers as we can get,” explained Bill “Captain Happy Hope” Morris, who leads Marco’s Meals of Hope. Morris went on, “We plan on packaging over 200,000 meals and will need every spot filled with volunteers to reach our goal.”
If registering a group or team, please register all volunteers at the same time with designation that those registered are part of a named group. Each station has 12 volunteers. Registering all names of a team at the same time is important so the registrants can be directed to the proper station at the event and avoid check in delays.
This year’s event will feature the music of Kevin Fitzgerald. “His music keeps everything alive and exciting. We are really lucky to have Kevin as part of our team,” said Morris.
The Meals of Hope Packaging Event brings the island together. Seniors, families, school age children, sports teams and clubs all join in to help feed the needy.
