We are Lakeland.

We’re enduring Irma’s messy aftermath together.

We are strong, we are a community, we will not be torn apart. We wear our hearts on our sleeves and our hands are constantly assisting those in need.

You all inspire us every single day. You inspire us to write, to photograph, and to design this shirt, “We are Lakeland.” YLakeland and Team Hammer have partnered together to provide this shirt in an effort to raise money for hurricane relief efforts. All the proceeds generated from this sale will be donated to the United Way of Central Florida  to rebuild Polk, Highlands, and Hardee counties. This fund will give storm victims a hand up during this difficult time.

All shirts are $10 and are a limited quantity. They are an ash grey with black lettering on the chest and can be picked up at the Lakeland Economic Development Council, 226 N. Kentucky Ave, Lakeland, FL 33801.

The generosity of your purchase will help the United Way of Central Florida meet the many storm-related needs and support long-term recovery efforts throughout the affected region. If we work together, we can rebuild communities that have been affected by the storm and help rebuild lives.
