This Labor Day Monday, in collaboration with EVERYDAY HERO PROJECT and OPERATION FLOAT, we are proud to host MINI MOONLIGHT MARKET FOR TEXAS. A Special Event Moonlight Market fundraiser and donation drop off location for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
We really want to thank everyone who came out this past Monday to our nearly rained-out Moonlight Market. We are so grateful and truly humbled by your support. At the end of the day, we spent over 14 hours in wet clothes... but would do it again in a heartbeat. We love our family of vendors, our friends, this community and Florida. We went to bed that night feeling completely inspired.
Inspired by those of you who came out despite the rain;
inspired by those in Texas dealing with way more rain and flooding than we can fathom; and inspired by the rain, itself. It brought to mind that we Floridians are only one forecast from a Hurricane Harvey.
SO, we hit the ground running Tuesday morning, and thanks to a few amazing souls, were able to mobilize very quickly.
Everyday Hero Project and Operation Float are sending TWO SEMI-TRUCKS (sponsored by Pinellas Technical College) to Houston this Wednesday morning, utterly filled with donated items. They are working with local Houston residents and have a secured a space to distribute out of once there. They will be at Moonlight Market this Monday to collect donations from our community.
THERE IS AN DESPERATE AND IMMEDIATE NEED FOR THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:
~ CLEANING SUPPLIES (Copious amounts!)
~ DUST MASKS
~ CONTRACTOR GARBAGE BAGS
~ ADVIL/TYLENOL/IBUPROFEN (SEALED)
~ WALMART/HOME DEPOT/LOWES CARDS
>>>> WATER <<<<
No clothes should be donated at this time except for:
~ NEW SOCKS
~ LONG-SLEEVED T-SHIRTS
>>>> FOOD <<<<
~ Non-perishables! Ready to eat is best!
No macaroni & cheese boxes or anything that requires cooking. Prefer peel-back foods like ready-made Chef Boyardee-type items and ready-to-eat protein bars, etc.
~ They are also collecting funds for life straws ($15) that convert flood water to drinking water.
Samberlah Events, 25 artisan vendors, 4 food vendors, and C.1949 Florida Beer Garden are all each donating 10% of our total sales, so please join us. If you cannot join us, or you would like to make a large donation (pallets, etc), please contact Everyday Hero Project to arrange a drop off time.
