Family of Tara Eckman Scott asks for help for the homeless and poor on Nov. 23
The family of the late Tara Eckman Scott, owner of the Taradise Cafe who passed away earlier this year is hoping to get help from the public to maintain a tradition that she began. Her practice was to provide food and other assistance to the homeless or otherwise disadvantaged in the community, actually all year long but she made an extra effort during the holiday season. Her family is reaching out asking for even a small donation to honor her memory and to help those among us who are less fortunate.
"Hi All. This is DeAndre’, Tara’s oldest son. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Anyone who knew my mom knew that she used the holidays as an opportunity to care for our community. Each year, for instance, she provided warm meals to those who were insecurely housed.
This year, our family wants to keep her spirit alive by creating care packages for those experiencing housing insecurity. If you are interested in donating, please consider sending money via Venmo or CashApp.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to donate items, please drop these off in the Taradise parking lot on Tuesday, November 23 between 5-6pm. Below is a list of items we are looking for:
-Jiffy cornbread mix
-Boxed mashed potatoes & gravy
-Rotisserie chicken from Costco
Thank you, everyone! Sending love your way this holiday season."
