Tampa Bay/Hudson, Florida – Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point is particularly pleased to announce that over 100 teen volunteers spearheaded the “Caring Beyond the Walls” project. The teen volunteers put together packages of personal care and food items to be distributed to less fortunate citizens of Pasco County. The project is a partnership between the Suncoast Health & Education Foundation and Florida Health Department of Pasco County, but it was the teens who made the project work. The teens recruited checks, gift cards, and a wide range of items to be placed in packages for those in need. All donations went directly to the following four shelters in Pasco County:
- The Rope Center
- Holy Ground
- The ARC
- Mobile Medical Unit for Pasco County
“We are so pleased that our teen volunteers have stepped up to help their fellow citizens and in doing so, improve our community as a whole,” said Donna Owen, Volunteer Manager at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point.
