Customers can help out families in need when grabbing lunch through a grassroots partnership between Moe’s Corner Deli and Blue Water Safe Horizons. The restaurant is taking collections of toiletries, diaper wipes, and personal care items.
Brandon Lordy, a partner at Moe’s Corner Deli in Downtown Port Huron, said that a customer came in with an idea to collect items for women and children who are clients of Blue Water Safe Horizons and he said yes. The customer, Heather Marie Fagan, set up the station and Lordy has worked to generate awareness. Lordy said that opportunities like this give everyone a chance to get educated about the non-profits in the area and the needs of the community.
Lordy himself was not aware of Blue Water Safe Horizons until this project happened. The agency provides emergency shelter along with counseling services. Lordy said the donation bag has been filled and refilled. The effort will continue for at least a few weeks. Moe’s is located at 902 Military Street in Downtown Port Huron.
