In The Community: Joe Maddon’s Thanksmas

Yesterday, Advantica had to the opportunity to give back to the Tampa Bay community as part of Joe Maddon’s Thanksmas event.

For more than 6 years, Joe Maddon, Manager of the Tampa Bay Rays, has gathered the team to shop, cook and serve citizens in need throughout the bay area. The event, which always falls between Thanksgiving and Christmas, works with local homeless and emergency shelters.

This year, as part of the event, Advantica joined forces with Transitions and Eye Doctors Optical Outlets to provide the children of these emergency shelters with vision exams and glasses. Nearly 40 children were screened for visual acuity and those in need of corrective lenses were seen by a local Optical Outlet.
