Dear Harbor Dish Family,
Harbor Dish, your Community Café, is facing a huge dilemma and is in dire need of your help. We currently own a failing 2006 Ford Escape with 178,000 miles and its reliability is the lifeblood of our 100% mobile non-profit. Our vehicle currently needs more than $6,000 in repairs, which is much more than it’s worth.
Harbor Dish doesn’t operate as a brick-and-mortar community café. We have shared space in the First Presbyterian Church of Safety Harbor and we have use of a commercial kitchen at Bayside Community Church, 3 miles away so we spend a lot of time driving back and forth to events. Additionally, we provide daily pick-up and delivery of food donations and purchase supplies for our 7 day a week Community Café operation. This past year we transported over 200,000 pounds of food, which is equal to over 167,000 meals! While we are still actively driving our 2006 Ford Escape, it’s on its last legs and we hold our breath that it will start each day!
Our goal is to raise $45,000 for a new nine-foot cargo van and so far, we’ve raised $15,000. You can help us by making a tax-deductible donation to the Harbor Dish at your earliest convenience. Your support is crucial to our efforts to continue our mission to serve our community and your generosity is sincerely appreciated.
Here are the many convenient ways you can donate today:
- Donate at the Harbor Dish website
- Call the Harbor Dish at 727-796-8286
- Mail a check payable to “Harbor Dish” at 255 5th Ave, South, Safety Harbor, FL 34695
- Drop off cash or a check at two locations on Fridays, 5:00-6:30 pm at Harbor Bar, at 840 Main Street, Safety Harbor. Or we are also participants of Third Friday located on Main Street and 4th Avenue, 6:00-10:00 pm. The Harbor Dish serves delicious meals to the community and everyone is invited, even the dog!
- Let us do the driving, a volunteer can stop by your location and personally pick up a check.
Thank you in advance for keeping our mission alive.
