South Tampa Chamber Holiday Non-Profit Donation & Volunteer Opportunities!
Children's Cancer Center
The Children’s Cancer Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving children and their families who are battling cancer or chronic blood disorders with the emotional, financial, and educational support necessary to cope with their life-threatening illness. With 29 support programs and services currently helping over 1,000 children and their families, support is offered to all members of the family and is available throughout every step of their difficult journey.
Children's Cancer Center has volunteer opportunities year round at the Children's Cancer Center! Specifically during the holidays we have volunteers come to the center and help organize and package all the gifts that were donated for our holiday adoption program.
Collecting toys or organizations can "adopt" families and shop for their specific wish list.

You can also create your own posts about ForHearts. Post on the social platform you’re the most active on, so those in your network that are actively engaging with you are more likely to be reached, regardless of the size of your social following. There are no requirements for how many times or how often an ambassador should post and share about ForHearts on social media, or the type of posts to create. We ask that ambassadors share what they consider important to them as a ForHearts Ambassador.
Any office supplies such as paper, ink, blank thank you cards, etc... would be appreciated. We also welcome auctions items (Gift baskets, signed memorabilia, gift cards, travel packages, etc) for annual events. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Meals On Wheels of Tampa
The mission of Meals On Wheels of Tampa is to nourish, enrich and strengthen the lives of seniors and individuals who have difficulty leaving their homes and are challenged to prepare meals. Recipients receive a hot, nutritious meal each weekday delivered by a volunteer who also serve as the “eyes and ears” to make sure recipients are fed and feel safe and secure.
Meals on Wheels of Tampa is always in need of volunteer drivers. We utilize over 100 volunteers each weekday to deliver meals. We have opportunities for individuals and groups. Check out https://mowtampa.org/volunteer/
Each December, Meals On Wheels Tampa, with the support of this community, delivers a holiday gift bag to each of the over 1,000 recipients on our program. Each holiday bag is filled with a variety of items, such as: blankets, crossword puzzle books, toiletries, calendars, socks, individual snacks and a special gift. For many of the recipients we serve, this will be the only holiday celebration they will have. Many do not have family or friends near and are unable to travel to visit loved ones. This is our way of showing our senior and homebound neighbors that they are thought of and cared for, above and beyond their daily meal. These gift bags are made possible by the many donations received from the community. A flyer of the requested items can be found at https://mowtampa.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/Meals-On-Wheels-of-Tampa-2022-holiday-item-drive-FINAL.pdf

On this National Day of Giving, Meals On Wheels of Tampa raises money for our Produce On Wheels (POW!) Program. We launched this program October 2015 after we heard from our recipients that they wanted fresh fruits and vegetables. The produce bags are free of charge and are delivered to the recipient’s homes by volunteers on the third Saturday of most months. This vital program provides healthy snacks, additional nourishment, and increased access to fresh produce.
