Each month our association chooses a charity or organization of some sort to make donations to. If you have an interest in helping choose an organization or charity, please contact our Community Service Chair, Erin Arena. Here is a list of our upcoming months:
MARCH 2019 -TYKES & TEENS
Tykes & Teens was founded in 1996, and has provided mental health services to more than 30,000 local children in need. We are dedicated to strengthening families and preventing suicide, substance use and other dangerous behaviors by ensuring that all children have access to high quality mental health services. This includes counseling as well as a wide range of specialized programming that helps families cope with issues such as sexual abuse, domestic violence, bullying, school suspension and more. Tykes & Teens provides outpatient services at three locations in Martin County: Palm City, Jensen Beach, and Hobe Sound, as well as on site counseling in the Martin County and Okeechobee County schools. Select services are also available in St. Lucie and Indian River Counties. Visti their website here: http://www.tykesandteens.org

APRIL 2019 - SHOES FOR SCHOLARSHIPS
Keiser University is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser. The goal is to collect 2,500 pairs of shoes. They are collecting gently worn, used and new shoes to raise money for student scholarships at the Port St. Lucie campus. Not only do you help the University, but the shoes also go to micro-entrepreneurs in developing nations like Haiti, creating jobs by repurposing and reselling the shoes. It’s a double donation! The goal is to collect 100 bags with 25 pairs in each bag. All shoe types are welcome: Mens, Womens, Kids, Casual, Work, Dress, Sport, etc.
PLEASE BRING YOUR DONATIONS TO THE VERO LUNCHEON.
