Seafarers live in very cramped quarters on their ships, and they often need things like hygiene products. That's why we make Ditty Bags!


Ditty Bags are like Care relief packages for the sailors of SeaPort Manatee. They come with toothpaste, soap, a Knit hat, and more. We give a ditty bag to seafarers during the Christmas months who come to SeaPort Manatee.

In the past year, we have given over 600 ditty bags to international seafarers. Help us continue to make an impact on every seafarer who comes to the Port!
