The Gulfport Merchants Association is accepting applicants for its 2015/2016 community support program. Local non-profit organizations that target or include Gulfport in their activities may apply.
Organizations that can help promote and provide volunteers for GMA's GeckoFest and related events, which help raise funds for the grants, will be given special consideration. For details and to apply go to GulfportMA.com. Deadline to apply is Feb 28, 2015, and decisions on recipients will be made by March 31.
In 2014/2015, the GMA provided grants to the Gulfport Historical Society, the Gulfport Neighbors, the Community Law Program and Gulf Coast Giving. The GMA also gives back to the community in other ways, including sponsoring Gulfport’s Get Rescued, the annual animal rescue event each February; a monthly Clothing Swap benefitting CASA, during the Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market; and Holiday Hoopla, which helps collect donations for Operation Santa in December.
