Anna Maria Island Moose Lodge recently collected items for Hope Family Services and the Domestic Violence Shelter in Manatee County.
Mike Johnson, owner of Spirit Movers, graciously donated a Storage Pod that was placed in the RE/MAX Alliance Group’s Manatee office parking lot to hold the many items collected. Items were distributed to the shelter as well as the Hope Chest Thrift Store at 1215 Eighth Ave. W. in downtown Bradenton.
Sandra Zenzel, Women of the Moose recorder, was instrumental in bringing this all together. With Sandra’s help and the support of Ernie Casali, AMI Moose administrator, along with Barry Grooms with RE/MAX Alliance Group and the overwhelming support of the community, this drive was a huge success. Everyone involved should stand up and take a bow, you earned it. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your support is very much appreciated.
