In honor of Safety Awareness Month, we are focusing our attention on the Guardian Ad Litem (GAL), a program that works with Florida’s 12th Judicial Court to help advocate for children as they navigate through the dependency court system.
During our Summer Safety Project our volunteers will learn about safety measures they can take. They will also get to create kits that will be donated to GAL. Our goal is to make 50 kits that will include sunscreen, insect repellant, hand sanitizer, a basic first aid kit, and more. Our volunteers will have fun learning about these tools with crafts and presentations provided by Sarasota County Parks and Recreation. They’ll also get to take one of the crafts home with them so they can utilize this unique tool just like the kids at GAL! Our event is on the 19th, and there are still a few spots left. Sign up here.
