On Tuesday, May 3 2016, HEAVENDROPt is participating in Give Day Tampa Bay. Give Day Tampa Bay is a community-wide, 24-hour online giving challenge hosted by The Community Foundation of Tampa Bay. This charitable event helps Tampa Bay area nonprofits raise much-needed dollars and bring awareness to the numerous challenges facing these organizations.
The minimum donation is $25. Nonprofits can also win monetary awards and additional prizes based on their day’s donations. The tallies for each organization are tracked in real time on the online leaderboard.
As you know, the parachute products at heavendropt.org provide employment and job training for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. Currently, we have to bid in a government auction to purchase the parachute material. Funds raised will help us buy the military parachutes we need to make products. The workers at HEAVENDROPt love making artistic products and being able to earn a fair wage.
You do not need to live in the Tampa Bay area to participate. Anyone can give online! Please consider helping to provide employment for people with intellectual and physical disabilities.
If you live in the Tampa Bay area and prefer to write a check, please take them to 2301 3rd Avenue South Saint Petersburg, FL 33712.
