After five years We Care Manatee has left our home on Riverside Drive to join other non-profit agencies at the Pinnacle Office Plaza. Our new location at 353 6th Ave West, Bradenton allows the agency to stay in the downtown area at a much more affordable cost. Since the new location is smaller, you may see some clutter while we reorganize and create storage, but there will be no disruption in service. Our phone number and email addresses remain the same. Once we get settled, we hope to see you at our open house.
Staff has been busy preparing for the move but continuing to plan for the future. The board recently approved February 12, 2022, for our annual Casino Night Fundraiser. This in-person event will once again be held at IMG Academy Golf Club. This annual fundraiser was cancelled last year due to Covid-19 and while we were able to maintain operations, this important event raises up to 30% or the agency’s operating budget. We are excited to be able to see everyone face to face!
Finally, let me mention that We Care Manatee continues our commitment to facilitating free medical care for low income, uninsured residents of Manatee County. We are working with our partners to be able to process referrals promptly and efficiently. I continue to invite physician specialists to partner with We Care Manatee to serve the County’s most vulnerable adults. If you know a medical provider who wants to find out how We Care Manatee can help them give back to Manatee County, please have them call me at 941-755-3952 ext. 5002, or drop by our new office. My door is always open.
