Hurricane Matthew was a headline in our area recently. Once the storm trackers put the First Coast in its path, our shoppers were all looking for air mattresses, camping supplies, flashlights and anything they could easily find for their emergency kits.
As luck would have it, we had just received a generous donation of camping equipment from a family in Atlantic Beach that was relocating to New York City. We were able to quickly get it in our Shetter Avenue store, where all of our camping equipment is sold.
A few hours after the storm passed, we were able to help a family whose home was seriously damaged by a fallen tree. Not only were we able to provide them with necessities for a reasonable price, we were able to give them a sense of hope in this difficult time.
Thank you to all our donors! Something you may no longer need, may be just what someone else needs.
