Osceola Council on Aging: Mercedes Car Raffle
Win A Car. Help Osceola Residents.
Wouldn’t this 2021 Mercedes GLA make an amazing family car? Buy a raffle ticket today and help the Osceola Council on Aging support our seniors, disabled adults, the disadvantaged, and families in poverty. It all starts with a $25 donation.
Years ago getting donations was easy. Mail a bunch of people, and wait for the checks to arrive. Recently, with COVID19 we are finding it more difficult to attain donations to support our residents. Hosting this Mercedes car raffle will help replace the many fundraisers we were unable to host this year.

It’s a win-win!! The raffle will help subsidize needed donations, and one lucky donor gets a chance to WIN A CAR.

The odds of winning this Mercedes are better than winning the lottery. So why not give to a cause you believe in? If not interested in the car raffle you are welcome to just donate.

Here’s how it works:
  • There is no donation limit get as many raffle tickets as you want to enter to win – $25/ticket
  • Tickets are on sale now and will be sold until the drawing at Osceola County Council on Aging New Year's Eve on December 31st.

Want to be a Meals on Wheels volunteer?
We have been blessed with the most AWESOME, CARING, COMPASSIONATE and DEDICATED group of Volunteers! These angels have been there with us during our hardest times (COVID Pandemic). Day after day, some of them are doing more than a route, more than one day a week! WE ARE SO THANKFUL TO EACH ONE OF THEM!
Because of COVID, the number of people we serve has doubled, making the routes longer! We have had to split routes to make it more manageable for volunteers and to better control meal temperatures. This is the reason why we need more volunteers! We are in need of volunteers especially in Poinciana, Poinciana Blvd., Pleasant Hill Road, Good Samaritan, Campbell City, Holopaw, Old Canoe Creek Road, BVL area, 192 going toward Celebration, among others!
If you are interested or would like to know more about being a hero to our Seniors in need, please call Wilda at 407-847-2144.

Hot nutritious balanced meals are served to active adults 60 years and older at numerous convenient locations throughout Osceola County. Meals are prepared fresh daily and contain one-third of the required daily allowance (RDA) for adults and comply with the Florida Department of Elder Affairs Guidelines.

The Senior Dining Clubs provide a place for older adults to gather for socialization and shared nutritious lunchtime meals. Senior Dining Sites are funded under the Older American Act and local funding. They are open to ANYONE age 60 or over! There is no charge for the meal, but a donation can be made to the program if the participants want to do so. Come share good conversation, fun games, and a meal with us.
