On Saturday, April 14, 2012, Boondocks will proudly sponsor their 2nd Annual Bike Fest with all proceeds going to the Volunteer Way of Pasco. Boondocks is asking all local residents to please come support a charity that does so much good for so many locally.
Last year, the Volunteer Way opened it’s new Moonlake Outreach Center which is located at 20008 Moonlake Road. The Volunteer Way helps all of Pasco but with the opening of the new center right here in Moonlake, this charity directly affects our neck of the woods. Hidden in our beautiful and spacious undeveloped terrain are areas which have become homeless tent camps. Without the help of the Volunteer Way of Pasco, these families and children will go without food and other things needed for survival.
The Moonlake Outreach Center provides free daily showers, Monday through Friday. Haircuts are available on the first and third Monday of each month. The also provide meals at their free Soup Kitchen 11AM to 3PM, Monday through Friday. All services are available to those who are in need of a nourishing meal, a clean shower, or some personal grooming.
The Volunteer Way asks on their website, “HAVE YOU EVER BEEN HUNGRY?” There are many in this area, including children, who have answered “yes” to that question. These are not people in some far away country, state or even, city. This center is right here in our neighborhood and helping our own neighbors. This charity helps many children, who without their assistance, would go hungry many nights in our own backyard.
So Boondocks encourages all Tampa Bay residents to come help a local community raise money for their less fortunate. Live outdoor music, vendor booths, Bike Show, and Bike Games are a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon while helping people. The slogan for the Volunteer Way is “People Helping People” so Boondocks would like to encourage all local residents to join Boondocks in neighbors helping neighbors.
