Every year, 95.7 The Beat gives back to the community in appreciation for their support. This first annual Streetcar of Hope Donation Drive will benefit The Spring of Tampa Bay, a non-profit organization whose mission is to prevent domestic violence, protect victims, and promote change in lives, families and communities.

95.7 The Beat, WestShore Plaza, Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART), and the TECO Line Streetcar System are teaming up this year to encourage the community to “Stuff-a-Streetcar.” The goal of the event is to help area residents by collecting clothing, gift cards, and other items for individuals and families in need during the holidays.
“The holidays are the perfect time of year to bring the magic of the season to others,” says HART Interim CEO Jeff Seward. “We provide a service to the community every day, but during this special time, we strive to bring encouragement and additional support to those who may be experiencing a difficult time. It’s HART’s way of promoting goodwill within the community.”
