The firefighters are asking residents to “Fill the Boat” with Holiday gifts.  If you would like to donate, bring an unwrapped toy to the Fire Boat located at the front of the store. The Local will also be accepting cash donations that will be used for purchasing gifts for the children.

In the past, the firefighters have collected well over $10,000.00 in donations and toys from residents, providing children in the area a happy holiday season.

Please come on out and help bring a child a Happy Holiday.

It has been almost 8 years since the inception of IONTB. Our operating expenses are not huge by any stretch of imagination but funds are necessary for our continued survival.  We are asking for a one time contribution or contribution on a monthly basis to help continue IONTB to flourish and enhance the coverage of news in the Tampa Bay area. Think of it as just giving up just a couple of your favorite coffee drinks each month.
