Florida's Silver Springs State Park

From 9am-Noon on Friday, January 13, 2017, a volunteer team started off their First Earth Smart Activity by Planting Long Leaf Pine Trees at Silver Springs State Park.

Golden Age Nursing Home

Dec 30, 2016

Every year we collect money and buy individual gifts for the Nursing Home. This one nursing home is state funded. Many of their residence have no family. This year we took on a extra charity. We helped with the foster care families. We sent lots of new clothes. I was very discouraged and sad when I was fearful that we weren't going to have enough money to buy for our nursing home residence. The word got out, and all of the drivers started donating money. We raised more than last year! We even bought them a 55" TV, (they had a little one) We got them a DVD player, with lots of movies.

It’s time to erase the stigma, to talk and to act.
