Tampa Bay Businesses Donating Proceeds To Hurricane Ian Reflief
Multiple Tampa Bay businesses are donating proceeds to Hurricane Ian relief efforts. Many residents of Tampa Bay woke up feeling extremely grateful that the worst of Hurricane Ian missed them. But unfortunately the same cannot be said to our friends south of us. Every day we are discovering more catastrophic damage and casualties to the southwest coast. With the help of Creative Loafing, we made a list of local businesses that are using a portion of their sales to help others.
We know if the storm had kept moving in its original track, our neighboring communities would do the same. If you are unable to volunteer or donate to any Hurricane Ian relief efforts, consider visiting any of these Tampa Bay businesses and making a purchase that will ultimately help others. Here are the businesses that we know of (so far) that are donating all of or a portion of their weekend proceeds.
If you are able, please consider donating to the Red Cross Hurricane Ian relief efforts. Click here for more information.
