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