Holiday Cheer for At-Risk Youth!

Have you wanted to make a difference but didn’t know how to approach it? How about providing for those who may need a little extra or just something at all during the holiday season? Well, Project Connect does that year round and we try to go above and beyond the needs for our at-risk youth and families, especially during the holiday season.

Project Connect is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) program that is contracted through the Department of Juvenile Justice. We are seeking donations to help purchase clothing, sports equipment, shoes and holiday dinners for their families. We serve youth who have hit some bumps in their journey and are teaching them the skills to overcome them and begin a journey towards success and to believe in themselves and become leaders.

With a simple donation, you would be helping us provide them a hot meal for the holidays that was not expected, clothing they thought of but can’t afford and so much more.

These donations are going to the youth in several counties in the central Florida area: Marion, Lake, Sumter, Citrus, Hernando, Volusia, Putnam, St. John’s and Flagler to be exact. We had quite a bit donated last year, but our goal this year is to provide a holiday meal and gifts to all of the families we serve!

Your donation could make a difference in the lives of others that are less fortunate than we are!
