Marco Island began its festive holiday season with the Annual Meals of Hope Packaging Event on Saturday morning, November 19th. Close to 500 volunteers gathered in the spirit of this special season to help ensure islanders would provide for those in need of healthy meals over the next several months as we move into 2023 and beyond. Marco Island has become a successful core location for one of these wonderful packaging events over the years, and has grown in the effort to combat hunger here in Collier County.

Packaging events occur throughout Collier County, with Marco Island assisting over the last dozen years or so. That effort, and its continued growth here on Marco, began under the watchful eye of the late Sunrise Rotarian Wayne Purvis. He would kick start the event here on the island, while enlisting the Sunrise, as well as the Noontime Rotary Club and the local Kiwanis Club, in that effort. Since then, numerous other organizations have joined this endeavor.
