Donations are welcome! See below on how you can help this most vulnerable population:
The Amy Collection - Donations of full-size toiletries, cleaning supplies, gift cards, etc. These can be collected year round. Contact 850-983-5150 x3450 for more information
Backpacks4Teen - A joint program with Manna Food Bank supplying backpacks with enough food for three days on the weekends for McKinney-Vento eligible students, McKinney-Vento eligible unaccompanied youth, and students with emergency food needs in Santa Rosa County. If you wish to help, please make monetary or food donations to Manna Food Bank 850-432-2053.
Food donations - We are not equipped to accept donations of food directly. We work with Manna Food Bank 850-432-2053 and Food Raising Friends 850-346-5950 to provide food boxes for our families. We also accept gift cards to local grocery stores to purchase emergency food as needed. Call Dawn Stone at 850-983-5150 x3450 for more information.
Clothing donation - At this time, our program is not equipped to take donations of clothing (other than new, unopened packages of socks and underwear). However, we are very appreciative of gift cards in order to shop for students as needed. Please contact Dawn Stone at 850-983-5150 x3450 for more information. If you are interested in donating new or gently used clothing, contact Ferris Hill Baptist Church's clothing closet. 850-623-3500
Christmas Assistance - If you are interested in adopting a family/child at Christmas, please contact Dawn Stone at 850-983-5150 x3450. We also will accept gift cards to purchase items needed for our families during this season of giving.
Shelters - as there are no emergency shelter options in Santa Rosa County we often turn to local hotels to put a roof over our students heads for a few nights while helping to put them in touch with other agencies. Donations to assist us in filling these needs are greatly appreciated. Please contact Dawn Stone at 850-983-5150 x3450 for more information.
GRADUATION!!! There are several expenses for graduation. In order for students to walk across that stage they must have a cap and gown and appropriate clothing/shoes. If you are interested in helping these students, please contact Dawn Stone at 850-983-5150 x3450.
College Day Field Trips - Each year we take McKinney-Vento eligible students on field trips to local post-secondary schools. We schedule trips based upon student interest to Pensacola State Campuses (Pensacola, Milton, and Warrington), University of Florida (Satellite located on PSC Milton), University of West Florida, and Locklin Technical College. Students are provided transportation to these locations, given a tour of the campus with programs and financial aid explanations, provided lunch, and then transported back to their schools. If you are interested in donating funds for these trips to offset the cost of buses and lunch, please contact Dawn Stone at 850-983-5150 x3450.
