Florida Pond Raises Money and Gifts for Our Charities
At our monthly meeting on October 27th, members of the Florida Pond contributed over $300 in Halloween candy to A Kid's Place.
On January 26th, The Pond met at the DoubleTree and collected approximately $300 in gift cards at various eateries and the movies for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Our turnout was low due to the presence of the LEA meetings at the Tampa Marriott Waterside, where thay actually had to evacuate the hotel due to a three alarm fire while we were holding our meeting nearby. At our march 23rd meeting, we raised approximately $400 worth of Easter Basket stuffing items. At the request of A Kid's Place, we did not assemble the baskets, as they wished to customize the baskets to fulfill the individual needs of their children.
