The most recent Florida Together Project was a baseball equipment drive for some little leagues in the Panama City area. We are happy to report that several individual members and commercial members donated items, both new and used, to this drive. FRPA delivered a van full of items on March 13 to Hiland Park, Callaway Youth Baseball and Southport Baseball. Thank you to all that donated to this important cause, allowing kids to have equipment as they go into their baseball season and hopefully providing some normalcy during this time.
As professionals, park and recreation workers are generally a helpful team. We seek out opportunities to show our care for one another through service. During our recovery time from Hurricane Michael, FRPA would like to continue to connect agencies and individuals with the things they need to rebuild their communities and lives. Thank you to these agencies that have committed to helping: Miami Recreation and Parks, Port St. Lucie Parks and Recreation, Tamarac Parks and Recreation, Naples Community Services, Seminole Recreation Department and St. Cloud Parks and Recreation.
