Does your family have a favorite holiday tradition? The Heart of Florida United Way family’s favorite annual tradition is our Thanksgiving Project and we are so excited to share it with you!
During this meaningful event, HFUW team members, board members, volunteers, donors, and sponsors come together to help Central Florida families in need by assembling and distributing Thanksgiving meal kits throughout Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties.
These meal kits help make sure our neighbors — including our ALICE families who are Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed — can enjoy a warm Thanksgiving meal at home with their own traditions.
Last year — with the help of many volunteers — we were able to distribute 1,800 meal kits. This year, we hope to distribute 4,000!
But, we need your help! Are you ready to LIVE UNITED to feed Central Florida families?
There are volunteer opportunities open to all ages (with adult supervision) ranging from packing kits to making cards and helping distribute meal kits at one of three distribution locations.
This year’s volunteer shifts for Thanksgiving Project are available from November 8 to November 19, 2022!
