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, so 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.

The Osceola Council on Aging Food Pantry provides hunger relief for those in need in the community by providing a box of food once a month. It brings help and hope to people in need.

Food Pantry hours: Every Thursday from 9:30 am to 10:30 am 
(Days and hours may change due to schedule conflicts and holidays)

Only one registration per household will be accepted. You may only receive food once a month. We reserve the right to limit the number of households per address.

Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation via email. You must present a copy of your printed confirmation email or show it to us on your phone or another mobile device to receive food. We ask that you arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to your given appointment time. The confirmation may only be used by one individual per household.

The amount of product is limited so registration will close when we reach capacity and will reopen when we are restocked. The person who registers must be the person who attends, as this is information that will be used to verify your household.
