Silver Oaks Apartments Donation Drive
Our friends in the University of South Florida Women’s & Gender Studies Alumni Group are holding a donation drive to help the residents of Silver Oaks Apartments in Tampa, Florida with cleaning supplies, pest control supplies, and miscellaneous other items. To purchase items, visit the Silver Oaks Donation Drive Amazon Wishlist. When checking out, select Vonnesha King’s address as the shipping address.
Due to neglect from their landlord Cambridge Management, residents in this subsidized housing complex have been forced to live in deplorable conditions with black mold, rats, and sewage leaks, and the health of the adults and children who live there is suffering.
All purchases made through the Amazon wishlist will go directly to the residents at Silver Oaks. Please give today if you are able and share widely (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts).
