Tampa Microwave’s newly formed Community Outreach Committee asked the employees of TM to donate for the victims of Hurricane Ian in Fort Myers and they came through in a big way! There were monetary and supply donations. Committee member Nicole Beaupre facilitated the distribution through her church, Relevant Church in Tampa. The donations were then distributed to victims in Fort Myers and surrounding communities.
Save A Suit Donations
Employees of TM along with their friends and family, donated new and gently used professional attire for Save A Suit, “a non-profit organization that provides veterans and transitioning service members with business suits, professional attire, and other clothing resources they need to achieve job security”. This is done at no cost to the service members or veterans.
Kick One Back fundraiser for Clothes to Kids
Two members of TM’s outreach committee, Chris and Katee, attended a fundraiser to raise awareness and the funds needed to give each child a pair of shoes. Clothes To Kids, Inc. has been distributing wardrobes to kids in need for 20 years in both Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties. Low income and in-crisis kids can receive a complete wardrobe (5 pairs of underwear, 5 pairs of socks, 5 tops, 4 bottoms, for girls a dress is optional and a pair of shoes) two times a year. Members of our community outreach team have already committed to volunteer in the Clearwater and St. Pete Clothes to Kids locations during November and December.
