service. The strength in numbers that allows us to accomplish things together. We give back to our community through the good deeds that we deliver to those in need.
Our Winter Project Services brought us closer to our South Florida beaches and celebrated National CleanUp Day as we joined these event happening from around the country! Working with the environmental conservation organization Miami-Dade Sea Turtles, we helped picked up trash & beautified Haulover Beach to keep our ocean ecosystem healthy as well as make the coastline a cleaner & safer place for local wildlife! And with the Florida AIDS Walk & Music Festival, we walked, danced & celebrated life down Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd with hundreds of participants as we raised funds in support of local HIV/AIDS services here in South Florida.
Our Spring Project Services have taken us into nature as we collaborated with Unity Coalition’s ELEVATE, a day of being NICER providing an assortment of 45 min. workshop segments all focused on Being NICER to your Mind, Body, Soul, Planet & others! At Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park, we helped launched the event's first ever Give Back Community Project: ELEVATE 365. We led both the restoration & beautification of the park's Butterfly Garden as well as the revitalization of the Fire Pit Amphitheater by painting it's benches in the Progress Flag colors.
Our Summer Project Services allowed us to help those in times of crisis and those in need of extra support. Through our WhoDunIt? Project Hurricane Relief, we were able to raise donations towards The Naples Pride Center in an effort for them to be able to provide bottled water, food and supplies to SW Florida LGBTQ+ residents affected by the extreme devastation of Hurricane Ian. With SunServe - Youth, they hosted a Back to School Youth Carnival where they collected and distributed backpacks with school supplies, while we were able to volunteer & operate classic midway games for LGBTQ+ youth and families.
Our Autumn Project Services had us Join the Movement during Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week, an annual program where people come together across the country to draw attention to the problems of hunger and homelessness. Guests were able to bring in canned, dry, or boxed goods in or donate money in exchange for a free drink at one of our many partner bars throughout Miami Beach & Wilton Manors . We've raised $2634.22 and collected over 100 bags of food total after the conclusion of the week-long Food Drive, and was donated back to various beneficiaries, including the Coconut Grove Crisis Food Pantry and The Poverello Center!
