The Junior League of Tampa commits 100% of the Holiday Gift Market’s net proceeds to fund League efforts in the areas of education and child welfare.
“When you shop at Holiday Gift Market or attend a Market special event, you are not just supporting a small business, you are also reinvesting in the community through projects, advocacy efforts, and grant programs,” says League member Lauren Rice. “The Holiday Gift Market is the reason the League can fund projects like the Diaper Bank and Love Bundles.”
