Ronald McDonald House
The children collect can tabs to donate. These are used for purchasing games and play equipment for the Ronald McDonald House, which offers shelter to families of children receiving treatment at local hospitals.
Food Drive for BEAM (Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry)
In the fall, the children donate canned and dry goods for the less fortunate families in the beaches area.
Nemours Children’s Hospital
Supplemental early literacy instruction for individual students is offered at the center at no cost to our client parents. Coaching for parents to help their child with literacy skills through workshops is also available.
Teen Parent Program
Care for infants and toddlers of teenage parents still attending high school are given care in coordination with the Duval County School Board and Beaches Academy.
Funds are collected to be donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN. Each child gets donations based on the number of laps accomplished on a bike or Hot Wheel. The center has raised more than $10,000 over the years.
