Seaglass Salvage Market Honors Donate Life Month
Shop for amazing goods and contribute to a good cause this weekend.
The third weekend of every month, Seaglass Salvage Market welcomes shoppers to meet the makers and browse their wide collections of locally made products. Owner Kelli Benton has made it her mission to give back to the community through her business. At each market donations are accepted for a nonprofit organization that supports the community in some way.
This month the organization hits close to home for Benton. “In August 2016 our family lost my step-daughter, Lindsay, to a car accident,” Benton says. “Lindsay was 17 and she was also, by choice, an organ donor.” Benton’s family started the Lindsay M. Benton Foundation to continue to save lives in her name and have made it their mission to spread the importance of organ donation. Information on the foundation can be found each month at Seaglass Salvage Market, but in April, Benton is taking time to honor Donate Life Month in her memory. “Carolina Donor Services helps us with giveaways and informational items to give out to the community,” Benton says. “Many people take time to tell us about their connection to organ donation, and we appreciate their stories of hope. We also encourage people to register and to be sure their family knows their wishes.”
All money collected the weekend of Seaglass Salvage Market goes directly to the Lindsay M. Benton Foundation to help support Donate Life and several local charities. You can find more information about the foundation at LindsayMBentonfoundation.com and more information about organ donation at CarolinaDonorServices.org.
