Successful Food Drive Contest

Thank you to all the ladies who made our annual food drive contest. Collectively we filled half a small moving box truck!

A special thank you to the Sebastian Chamber for bringing in the most. Followed by Pak Mail Beachside and Becky Moon of Rodan & Fields.

All food went to the Treasure Coast Food Bank. Our goal was 2,500 lbs. of non-perishable food and we exceeded it. As a result, the total raised was 3,543 lbs!  Now that is a Successful Food Drive Contest!

Hope to see you all on Aug. 1st when we meet at the Blue Star for drinks, appetizers, networking and the presentation of 150+ backpacks to the Gifford Youth Achievement Center.

As part of their focus, the GYAC offers an After School Education Program (ASEP).  With great success, it serves students in grades K-12, providing homework assistance in addition to tutoring and one-on-one mentoring.  For convenience, thanks to a partnership with the School District of Indian River County, students are brought to GYAC directly from their school and after a light snack and a short recreational time, transition into their classroom.  Better still, a Guidance Counselor is available on-site to discuss with students and/or their parents, issues that may have an impact on a child’s academic success. Students are able to discuss with counselor, individually and in groups, topics of interest to them such as bullying, peer pressure, and parental issues.
