The Cast Co-op at Cagan Crossings, where creativity and support come together.
A new non-profit initiative has hit Central Florida. Cast Co-op, located at Cagan Crossings in Clermont, supports hospitality industry workers impacted by the pandemic by offering a place to sell goods, pick up groceries, pet food, or other life essentials.
The Cast Co-op, presented by Ear For You, Inc, Hospitality Pets in Need, and Ear For Each Other groups, will open on Saturday, April 24 to the general public. The entire community is welcome to come shop at the Co-op. Hospitality workers have prepared creative products ranging from crafts to special services at the Ear For Each Other Marketplace and profits stay with the sellers.
All hospitality workers affected by financial hardship are invited to complete an online eligibility form that can be found on castco-op.com. Once approved and needs are determined, Ear For You, Inc. will reach out to schedule an appointment for clients to visit.
Florida Residents and beyond are invited to donate to the cause. Through monetary donations, the Cast Co-Op is able to stock shelves with food and other life essentials to support local hospitality workers in need. In-kind donations of unexpired food and household necessities are accepted and can be dropped off at the Cast Co-op during operating hours. A list of needed items can be found on the website.
The Cast Co-op is located at 16744 Cagan Crossings, US-27, Clermont Florida, 34714 with a Grand Opening held on Saturday, April 24 from noon to 5:00 pm. See website for additional shopping hours.
