Last fall, the Dale Mabry CAC began a series of donation drives to community organizations in need of specific items. Faculty and Staff members have been encouraged to clean out their garages and homes to help with this community outreach project.
Our first recipient was the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. Dale Mabry employees generously responded to requests for blankets, beds, toys, scratching posts, and the like. Our next recipient was Florida Center for Survivors of Torture.
Once again Dale Mabry came through by donating household items to set up homes for clients. Another was Dress for Success, an organization dedicated to helping women prepare and dress for job interviews. Again, the staff and faculty of Dale Mabry responded generously, contributing over 10 boxes of slightly worn, fashionable business clothing and accessories.
Our current drive is for Animal Based Charities, an organization that raises funds to help various pet adoption and rescue groups throughout the Bay area. We are asking for CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, old records, or anything else that might be appropriate for Animal Based Charities to sell in their Thrift Store. The drive has been successful and it’s a joy to see how the Dale Mabry Campus is making an impact on the community through service.
