ThanksGIVING Hurricane Relief Drive for SW Florida

November 25 @ 8:00 am - December 2 @ 5:00 pm

This Thanksgiving season, if we have food, shelter, clothes, and access to clean water, we should feel blessed. Many of our neighbors in Southwest Florida are not as fortunate.  Some lost everything in Hurricane Ian and are still struggling to put food on their table.  Blue-Green Connections is partnering with Water Warrior Alliance to deliver needed supplies to these folks.  Please join us in making their holiday season a little brighter!

Wild Iris Cafe – now through 2pm Friday 12/2 – drop-off
Wild Iris Cafe – 12/2 8am-2pm – Fill the RV and visit Blue-Green Connections table while sipping your cup of joe!
Dunedin Boat Club – 6pm – 7pm Thursday, 12/1 – drop-off
