Smoke on the Coast

Destin Commons is excited to extend the opportunity for local area Non-Profit Organizations to partner with our Smoke on the Coast BBQ & Fireworks Festival event on Tuesday, July 3, 2018. Qualifying organizations will have the chance to receive up to $15,000 in donations over three separate categories through their participating BBQ team.

And we are excited to partner up with Powiggs BBQ for the second year in a row. Last year Powiggs BBQ won first place in Judges Choice, bringing home a total of $7,500 to help support children and families. Please come out and support this collaborative effort between Powiggs and FreshStart!

Repeat Street

We are in need of friendly people who want to spend a few hours per week volunteering at our beautiful and busy Thrift Store.

We have lots of great folks, but because we are SO blessed with donations and shoppers we need MORE friendly people! More cashiers, more donation sorters, delivery drivers, etc. If you have time, energy, and a smile we can use you!
