SOS Florida is pleased to welcome the United Way of Broward County's 21st Annual Day of Caring to our campus on October 19, 2012. Each year, hundreds of volunteers lend their time, talents and energy to making a difference in our community. Our family is honored to have been chosen to host this year's event.
Over the past two decades, more than 350 foster children have lived, played, and grown in our Village. It is inevitable that twenty years of wear and tear have taken a toll on our twelve homes and campus. As we prepare to celebrate our 20th anniversary in January, our focus has turned to restoring, repairing and beautifying the Village for the next generation of SOS children.
The support of this year's Day of Caring is key to accomplishing these tasks. Already on the "to do" list for the restoration are replacing and repairing dry wall, painting walls and ceilings, polishing floors, grouting bathrooms, installing new closet and storage systems, improving landscaping around home and common areas, repairing and cleaning patio areas, replacing aging furniture and appliances, installing additional lighting in common areas, and more.
Donations of supplies, services and dollars are welcome. For more information about how you can help contact SOS Community Relations Director Vickie Walter.
