We are asking that everyone who is attending to please bring at least one non-perishable food item. Volunteers will be collecting canned food items for Volunteers in Service to the Elderly (VISTE).
Those attending that do not bring a canned food item are asked to donate $2 to help support the VISTE food bank. A convenient text-to-give service is in place so visitors and others can easily donate by texting FEEDLAKELAND to 50155.
VISTE is a community based non-profit organization serving Lakeland, Bartow, Mulberry and Ft. Meade. Established in 1983, the primary goal is to enable elderly persons to continue living independently and safely in their own homes.

It is an excellent opportunity for our community to come together in celebration of our great country.” He added, “We ask all those attending to bring a canned food item that will help those in need. All non-perishable items benefit Volunteers in Service to the Elderly (VISTE) and new for this year is our text to give option. We want everyone to have fun be we also want to help raise awareness for VISTE and use this opportunity to have the community’s largest canned food drive.”
