Tampa, Fla. — (October 28, 2021) — Moe’s Southwest Grill invites Tampa Bay to its 24 area locations to support The Heart Gallery of Tampa during November’s National Adoption Month.
Beginning November 1, all 24 Tampa Bay locations of the fast-casual southwestern restaurant will donate $5 from each nacho, taco or fajita meal kit purchased to The Heart Gallery of Tampa. The nonprofit uses photographic exhibits to introduce foster children to awaiting adoptive families because every story is a piece of “heart.”
Starting in 2005, the Heart Gallery of Tampa captures portraits of children and sibling groups in the area who are looking for their forever families. By partnering with Moe’s during the month of November, The Heart Gallery is able to raise awareness for National Adoption Month. Each participating Moe’s location will also display a portrait of a local foster child.
“The Heart Gallery of Tampa is thrilled to partner with Moe’s to help raise awareness of our children waiting for a place to call home,” said Lindsay Hermida, Executive Director of the Heart Gallery of Tampa. “Moe’s does so many great things in the community and their focus on family makes this a perfect partnership!”
To participate in the fundraiser, select your choice of taco, fajita, or nacho meal kit, which all feed 4-6 people. Each meal kit is made to order and for your whole family to enjoy. With honestly good ingredients like all-natural white meat chicken, grass-fed steak, organic tofu, and handcrafted guacamole, Moe’s offers a wide variety of options to meet guests’ unique tastes and lifestyles. And no matter which kit you select, you are sure to enjoy your meal.
The philanthropic contribution is being coordinated and hosted by the Tampa Bay Cooperative of Moe’s Southwest Grill in partnership with The Heart Gallery of Tampa. Contact the General Manager at your neighborhood Moe’s location for more information on how your organization or charity can partner for its next fundraiser, including meal kit sales and spirit night events.
