FOOD DRIVE FOR SABAL PALM
We have been grateful to partner with Sabal Palm Elementary Community Partnership School to create a free after-school strings program for students, Murdock’s Lil’ Mozarts.
Sabal Palm Elementary School and the surrounding neighborhood were one of the hardest hit areas during last Friday’s storms.
As a Community Partnership School, Sabal Palm is a resource for education, healthcare, human services, and food for students, their families, and all residents in the area, many of whom are still without power.
The school is now open and has enough food and supplies for their students, but the supplies they provide to neighbors in need are depleted.
To help, we are collecting food and supplies at this concert.
The school administrators have requested non-perishable food items and fresh produce. We can also take cash donations or store gift cards (Costco, Walmart, Publix, Target, etc.) Staff will use these to shop for what they most need.
Donations will be collected at the TSO table in the Lobby of The Moon.
If you are not able to attend the concert but want to donate, please call 850-224-0461 or come by our offices in The Garden Club: 507 North Calhoun Street.
Thank you!
