Locally owned Sign of the Dolphin is helping Eckerd Connects collect much needed supplies for the children they care for. Beginning January 28th through the month of March, drop off any item listed below to the donation boxes inside the store and they will go straight to where they are needed most. To thank you for your effort, Sign of the Dolphin will give you a coupon for 20% off any item in the store (some restrictions apply). Those who contribute will also receive a special invitation to the Spring Fling taking place at Sign of the Dolphin on March 31st. The local director of Eckerd will be there during the Spring Fling to thank you and share the word on their great mission.
When children are removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect, they often enter foster care with just the clothes on their backs, seldom have a toothbrush, and carry the few belongings they have in a garbage bag!
Eckerd Connects | Raising Hope’s ROOM OF HOPE is a cheerful room with a store-front appearance filled with clothing, shoes, diapers, hygiene items, duffel bags and much more so that foster children and teens can “shop” for what they need with pride and dignity. Your caring efforts will greatly soften the trauma these children have endured.
Remember, no child asks to come to foster care, and they should never carry their life belongings in a garbage bag. Every child deserves HOPE!
SIGN OF THE DOLPHIN is located at 12999 PARK BOULEVARD, SEMINOLE, FL 33776
