VENICE, FL: Caldwell Trust Company and its staff members are sharing their many blessings with donations to the Holiday Drive sponsored by Meals on Wheels of Sarasota, according to Sheryl Vieira, vice president of marketing and communications.
Meals on Wheels of Sarasota, a nonprofit organization founded by local churches and community leaders in 1971, has expanded on an earlier federal community meal service program in response to the needs of home-bound seniors, veterans, and physically and mentally disabled Sarasotans of all ages in the northern Sarasota County area. The organization has since served thousands of individuals in need here.
Time Meals on Wheels delivered the first meal on December 7, 1971, the organization and its volunteers have carried over 7 million meals – an average of 160,000 meals annually-to those who wish to remain independent in their own homes but cannot stop or prepare meals for themselves. In its 27-year history, Meals on Wheels has seen the number of its clients increased, and the need continues to grow as the population ages.
“Meals on Wheels of Sarasota is an example of exactly what our community needs, and we’re so glad that we can support them in their mission especially during these challenging times,” Vieira said.
Caldwell Trust Company is an independent trust company chartered in the state of Florida, with offices in Venice and Sarasota. Established in 1993, the firm currently manages over $1.25 billion in assets for clients throughout the United States. The company offers a full range of fiduciary services to individuals including services as trustee, custodian, investment adviser, financial manager and personal representative. Additionally, Caldwell Trust manages 401(k) and 403(b) qualified retirement plans for employers.
