A Night to Remember

3 Stories. 42 Attendees. $208 Donated. 1 Amazing Event.

TallySOUP is a quarterly microfunding dinner aimed at bringing the Tallahassee community together to raise funds that support local community projects. On Friday, November 10th, we heard from three amazing women who are working on projects to better their community. Here's a recap from last week's presentations:  

Carly Sinnadurai - Winner

The Sharing Tree is a local nonprofit reusable resource center that diverts waste from our landfill and turns it into opportunities for educators to get free materials. We are currently moving to a new location and are looking to expand on our mission, by creating large play exhibits. These exhibits will be phase one of our creative lab/kids museum for Tallahassee, which will have everything from a lego wall to a gadgetry station.

Cara Fleischer

Saint Paul's Creation Care group has teamed up with Rags2Bags to make reusable grocery bags out of old t-shirts to give to Manna on Meridian food bank for their food distribution. This helps the community by reducing the need for plastic, provides citizens with reusable bags, and increases awareness about sustainability. We will be acquiring a collection receptacle for the community to donate their used t-shirts and contribute to this awesome cause.
