The Saint Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum, a nonprofit organization, is proud to partner with Farm Share and we are excited to announce that on August 4th, we are hosting an event for St Johns County Residents that will provide food to individuals and families in need.
“The need in our community continues to grow, and has been made worse by the pandemic, loss of jobs, and loss of income. As a non-profit organization, we are honored to give back to those in our local community who are in need.” Said Kathy Fleming, Executive Director, St Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum.
In collaboration with others and through generous in-kind contributions from businesses in our local community, the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum and our partners are able to provide this much need help and support to others.
DATE: AUGUST 4, 2020
LOCATION: ST. AUGUSTINE, PONCE DE LEON MALL, BELK DEPT. STORE PARKING LOT
TIME: 9AM – NOON
