On December 19, 2020, The Masala Giving Circle partnered with Dollar Dynasty, Inc. to distribute toys, books, school supplies and other needed items to children in the Newtown community. Masala members donated over $2,000 in cash as well as seventeen bicycles, 150 books, and almost 200 toys to seventy neighborhood children. Masala also donated $1,500 to Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee to support African American/Black communities in need of food during the COVID-19 crisis. The Food Bank of Manatee, a program of Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee, is ensuring that essential nutrition is available to homebound seniors, children, and families who do not have access to meals.
