Houston, Florida, Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean have been devastated by three major hurricanes. The Vendors at our Broad Ripple Farmers Market want to help! Join us this Saturday, September 30, as we dedicate the morning to raising funds for Hurricane Relief support.
The timing and magnitude of the damage has created the need for a long-term relief effort well beyond search and rescue. Restoring basic services like safe water, power, housing and livelihoods will take months, and in some cases, years.
After carefully reviewing the various agencies doing hurricane relief, we felt that Operation USA offers the specific services that will help rebuild in all these affected areas. They are accredited by both Charity Navigator and Give.org. For more information on Operation USA and their work, visit their website here.
We are pleased that most of our BRFM vendors will be donating 10% of their sales This Saturday to Operation USA for hurricane relief. Many thanks to David Barrickman of Wildflower Ridge Honey for getting the ball rolling.
Customers will also be able to contribute directly to this important cause at the Information Booth in the center of the Market.
